Why should I become a host?
If you have a charge point at home, you probably only use it every few days – so why not make it earn its keep? By becoming a Co Charger Host you can help your neighbours to make the switch to electric vehicles, and make a good income doing it!
It’s easy – the app looks after the arrangements and payments for you, and you don’t even need to be there when your neighbour charges.
Thanks to you, neighbours who can’t have their own home chargers will be able to make the switch away from fossil fuel motoring. You’ll be helping make your neighbourhood cleaner and greener and you can make a good, regular income doing it.

How does being a host work?
It’s so simple: Just get the free app and create a Host account. Enter basic information on your location plus the type of charger you have, and set your pricing with the help of our simple Host Rate Calculator.
Your neighbours who want a reliable, bookable way to charge an EV can then find you via the app, send messages, and request a charging session as a one-off or regular booking.
As the Host, you stay in control. You can approve or decline booking requests and decide whether you want to be there in person or not – it’s just down to your preference. The app looks after reminders and makes sure you both know the very simple process for running each session.
Bookings are made for the whole time the vehicle is left, which many users prefer to be overnight. The Chargee only pays for the time the charger is active, making sure a fair amount is paid for each session. The Chargee gets a good way to run an EV, and you get a good income – often over £250 per year from an EV average driver, depending on your price and your home electricity tariff.
At the end of a session you get to check the numbers before the payment, minus Co Charger’s 12% fee, is taken from the Chargee’s pre-registered card via our very secure payment system. The remainder is deposited a few days later into whichever account you register on your profile.
It’s so easy – and you can make a huge difference to your neighbourhood and your bank account!Download for Android
