Savvy Homeowners Could Make Thousands by Renting Out EV Devices


Homeowners with electric vehicle charge point miss out on thousands of pounds a year by letting their driveways sit empty.

EV experts at are urging electric car owners to consider renting out their parking spaces to make some quick and easy extra money this summer.

By renting out spaces and devices for motorists looking to park and charge, homeowners could be set to make thousands each year.

Typically, electric vehicles only need to be charged a couple of times a week – depending on how often the car is used and how many miles are driven.

This means that charge points at home are left unused for most of the year.

Instead of letting these devices gather dust when not used, homeowners should consider renting out their chargers to other EV owners.

More and more electric car drivers are finding it difficult to charge up whilst on a trip, given the seemingly endless queues for a public ChargePoint.

Local authorities nationwide are also considering increasing overstaying fines at these public charge points despite the news that the government is falling behind on delivering the promised number of devices.

Clever homeowners can use EV drivers’ difficulty when publicly charging their cars by renting out their devices.

Data shows that, on average it costs £17 to charge an electric vehicle from 0 to 100% at home.

By renting the parking space to two motorists weekly for £25, savvy homeowners can cash in £2600 each year, without lifting a finger.

By profiting off renting out home devices, Brits can help pay their electricity bills while still bagging some cash in their pockets on a charge point that otherwise would’ve been empty.

Tim Alcock from said: “Homeowners who are not already renting out their car parking spaces with home charging devices are seriously missing out.

“It’s such a simple way to make some extra money, and you could easily make thousands of pounds a year by not lifting a finger.

“Instead of letting your EV ChargePoint sit empty for most of the week, consider renting out the space to make a quick buck. And with the rising cost-of-living crisis ever looming, it’s a no-brainer.

“The government is falling behind on installing more publicly available charge points, meaning an increase in queueing times for motorists looking to charge up across the country.

“Take advantage of this and rent out your charge points for drivers needing to power their vehicles this summer. Based on demand, there is always the opportunity to increase prices too.

“Over the warmer months, motorists will travel long distances on holidays and see friends and family. These EV drivers will no doubt need a place to stop and charge up, and it’s easy to make your driveway the solution.

“There is certainly serious money to be made by renting out your driveway and at-home ChargePoint, and savvy homeowners should jump on the opportunity immediately.”
