JustPark, the UK’s leading driveway sharing platform, has launched FleetCharge to unlock and electrify private driveways to enable businesses to switch their fleets to electric vehicles years earlier.
For the 75 per cent of fleet drivers that don’t have off-street parking at home, using an EV can be a challenge. Business drivers can’t afford time or associated risks of finding and using a public charging point, with many of these also not being suitable for larger vehicles or e-vans to use.
With FleetCharge, JustPark will find a local homeowner with a driveway within a five-minute walk of the EV driver, install a home charger and give said fleet driver exclusive access to that charging point.
This innovative programme is managed exclusively by JustPark, who, for homeowners, will cover all the costs associated with installing a discreet EV charger at their home, as well as day-to-day running costs including any subscriptions and electricity costs. Through FleetCharge, all the upfront EV charging installation costs are covered, but it could potentially earn the hosts a guaranteed additional income of £1,000 a year – all tax-free.
JustPark is inviting homeowners with a driveway across the UK to register their interest in becoming a FleetCharge host and potentially earning a guaranteed income of £1,000 a year.
It takes less than a minute to apply at justpark.com/ev/host and JustPark will get in touch when there is a local EV driver nearby who needs your space.
Businesses across the UK are responding to increasingly aggressive government legislation to accelerate the transition to EVs. This Includes outright bans on the sale of new Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) vehicles in 2030. In many cities, congestion charging has become increasingly punitive for diesel powered vehicles.
The challenge remains a significant imbalance between the growth of public charging infrastructure (more than 60% of councils have no set EV infrastructure strategy) and rapidly increasing demand for EVs for both personal and business use.
By unlocking the thousands of unused parking spaces across multiple settings including businesses, driveways and even church car parks – we enable businesses and fleet managers to execute their desire to exploit the full benefits of transitioning fleets to EV.
