EVmatch is a software application that enables a peer-to-peer charging network - privately owned EV charging stations can be rented out to the public, to tenants, employees, etc...it's very versatile! EVmatch provides the sharing economy technology behind a community charger, allowing drivers to find, reserve, pay, and, charge for the use of community chargers. They enable access control to prevent free-ridership and offer a smart and affordable solution to owning and operating a community charger.
Keeling Curve grant
We have teamed up with EVmatch and the Keeling Curve Prize for Global Climate Change Mitigation to fund community charger installations! We find local electrical contractors to help design and build the chargers, and the grant helps subsidize the cost of the project. For our initial deployments, we partnered Chicago-based Wendell R Terry Electric and AMB Renewables, part of the Blacks in Green contractor network who designed and installed the chargers at each site. Please let us know if you'd like to connect to these experienced installers for a quote or learn more about the work of Blacks in Green (also building a community charger at their Green Living Room soon!).
