The Co Charger app looks after the ‘matchmaking’ between people with chargers, known as ‘Hosts’ and ‘Chargees’ – those who’d like to share them. It handles the communications, bookings and payments so the whole process is simple, easy and hassle-free.
There are at least 250,000 home chargers in the UK – far more than the 35,000 public chargers currently available. By connecting neighbourhoods and helping motorists share their chargers, Co Charger is enabling the 40% of motorists who live in flats and terraces who aren’t able to charge at home transition to electric cars. This is a switch that millions are eager to make well in advance of the 2030 ban on new petrol and diesel sales. And Co Charger means they can do it now, without waiting for a single additional public charger to be installed.
‘I’ve wanted to change to an electric car from a diesel for a long time. Through Co Charger I’ve found a Host with a charger he’s willing to share within a few minutes walk of my house.’
