Charge your EV & earn passive income
As a P2P Host on AutomateOn's charger marketplace you earn passive income whilst getting a free charger for you to use!
Help the EV community
Help EV adoption by making the EV charger available for fellow drivers to use. The more chargers available, the more we can eliminate range anxiety
Block out availability
Block out times when you can make the EV charger available for public use. A minimum of 4 hours availability per day, on average is expected.
We pay you a rev share on every driver that uses the EV charger. Your personal use of the EV charger is free.
We will maintain & monitor the charger to ensure it's always in good condition for you and your drivers.

EV Charger Host Criteria
We're looking for homes and small businesses across Australia to help improve EV charging infrastructure by being a Host (and get a free AC EV charger in return!) If you think you can meet the criteria below we'd love to talk to you!
You'll need to have off-street parking like a driveway, carport or garage and space nearby that we can install the EV charger.
On average you'll need to make the charger availalble for around 4 hours a day. If overnight doesn't work for you or you have blocked out holidays, that's ok!
Solar panels (optional)
Being an EV charger Host makes the best sense if you have solar panels installed. You're letting EV drivers top up with the best & cheapest form of energy!
As we're just launching we're focused on the most in-demand locations for EV charging. We want to be everywhere so location alone won't exclude you, just our order of rollout

Proud Industry Members
Do all chargers work with your platform?Out platform and software works with all EV charger brands that are OCPP (Open Charge Point Protocol) compliant such as ABB, Schneider Electric, ZJ Beny & Delta. Unfortunately Tesla Destination Chargers are not OCPP-compliant.
Do you operate across Australia?We have plans to operate all across Australia but right now we are focused on Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide & Perth. Follow us on Insta or Twitter for updates when we have chargers or drivers in your location.
What if availability of my EV charger changes day to day?No problems! Simply block out the dates and times your charger is unavailable on the app. If you have recurring blocks of availability (or unavailability) just set that up in the app as well.
What if a driver stays at my place beyond the agreed-upon time?If they're in or near their EV just politely remind that their time is up (give them a grace period to move). We implement idle fees and power cut-offs so drivers are incentivised to move on as soon as they can. Worst-case, we have the verified contact details of all AutomateOn customers so will contact them if necessary.
How much passive income can I expect?The short answer is it depends (were you expecting that? 😁). The main factors impacting how much income you can expect from your EV charger are; - Location: if you are in an in-demand location such as close to shops, offices, apartment buildings, or schools. A good gauge if there are a lot of non-residential cars parked on your street - Availability: The more time you can make the charger available, the more likely you can generate more income. Even better if you're near a block of apartments and you're able to make the charger available overnight. - Solar or cheap electricity: You'll make more profit if the electricity you're providing is cheap or even free! When you chat to our team they can guide you on the expected range. Bear in mind we're just starting up and EV adoption rate increasing exponentially so all good things in your favour!
How often can I expect to get paid?We pay monthly and try to pay 5-7 days from the close of every month.
