JustPark’s FleetCharge program could earn UK homeowners £1k a year

Driveway sharing platform, JustPark, has launched its FleetCharge service, to unlock and electrify private driveways to enable businesses to switch their fleets to electric vehicles (EV) years earlier.

For the 75% 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 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 www.justpark.com/ev/host and JustPark will get in touch when there is a local EV driver nearby who needs your space.

Mike Strahlman, Director of EV, JustPark, said: “It’s a win-win for the driver and business but also for the homeowner, who through hosting these fleet drivers and vehicles, could earn £1,000 a year. Our JustPark team will look after the hosts, providing and paying for the installation of a charging unit and all costs associated.”

Vicky Parrott, freelance motoring writer, presenter and EV specialist, said: “The transition to an electric car is much harder for anyone who can’t charge reliably at home, company car driver or not. Understandably, many motorists wouldn’t even consider it. With FleetCharge now offering a reliable, guaranteed overnight charging solution for those who can’t plug in at home, it promises to make the jump to an electric car much more attainable for a whole range of business users. Plus, for hosts, the guaranteed monthly income could help households who are feeling the pinch due to rising living costs.”
