#1 Close To Where You Live
You may not have your own off-street parking, but chances are someone in your neighbourhood or local community does.
It’s now possible to charge your electric car on someone else’s driveway. Co Charger has developed a free app that shows local ‘host’ sites where you can charge your car for a fee.
Using the app, you can see a host’s charging speed (typically 7.4 kW), connector type (usually Type 2), rental charge (e.g. £1.50 an hour) and any other requirements such as a minimum fee.
Can't find a Co Charger host near you at the moment? New host sites are being added all the time, as there's a financial incentive – people who do have a charging point can earn some income by allowing others to use it.
Check out also innovative charging champions, Connected Kerb. They're working with county councils and developers up and down the country to install convenient charging points in parking bays. Their Brand Ambassador is lightning quick Rugby legend, Martin Offiah, so expect to see a rapid roll-out of street chargers near you soon.
