Peer to peer charging

Discussion in 'General' started by Bianca Lontc, Jan 22, 2020.

  1. Has anyone tried to sign up for peer-to-peer charging apps like EVmatch? How was your experience? Was thinking of signing my home charger up to the service and want to know how the experience feels like

    Use "plugshare.com" as this is the universal EVSE locator application.

  3. Was planning to host with my home charger. Do you have any experience with that?

    I had put it in as available in 2016 but I have a single lane, driveway. If someone came to use my EVSE, they would have blocked my driveway either blocking me in or out.

    So instead, I installed my spare EVSE behind Propst Drugs at 717 Pratt Ave., Huntsville, AL. There it has (and continues) to server as the North-East most, L2, EVSE. I and others use instead without blocking anyone in or out.

    IMHO, the best approach is to find a supporting business where you frequently shop. Work with the owner to provide an EVSE. Everyone will win.

  5. Interesting thoughts. Did you have any agreement with the business owner in terms of the revenues (if any)?

    He provides the power, free, and I provide the hardware at no cost.
