Community EV charging network JustCharge has announced a new partnership that offers Zap-Map users the ability to find and book its chargers directly through the Zap-Map app.
The partnership means a total of 1,600 bookable locations from JustCharge – a JustPark brand – are now available on Zap-Map.
Charging spaces will also be visible to the tens of thousands of drivers who already use JustPark for EV parking.
With the typical home charging point not being used for 90% of the time, JustCharge says its service can bring in additional household income for hosts, helping offset the costs of buying an EV.
Ben Lane, Co-founder & CTO at Zap-Map, said, “Although the public charging network is expanding rapidly, there is a real need for community charging closer to home, providing a viable option for those without a driveway to charge an EV.
“The good news is that we know that a fifth of EV drivers are prepared to share their home charger with others, and that’s what makes this new partnership with JustCharge so exciting.
“Working together, we can give Zap-Map users even greater choice in finding a suitable local charger, creating an additional source of household income for those with home charging points, and providing real benefit to the local community.”
Anthony Eskinazi, Founder and CEO at JustPark, said, “Launching our JustCharge listings onto Zap-Map is a huge step for our community charging network.
“With this partnership, EV drivers can now find and use charging points and enjoy finding one of the thousands of first bookable community charging locations via JustCharge.”
