What is myEV?
myEV is a car hire system designed to give you flexible options for getting from A to B. We offer a range of prices based on how much you help manage electric vehicles (EVs) in the network. myEV helps to reduce stress on the electricity network from charging EVs by moving cars between different charging locations at different times of day.
How Does myEV Use Solar?
We want to make the most of solar. The cost of trips using myEV are partially calculated by the solar availability of your destination. If you're driving to an area with higher solar availability, and confirm you'll plug it into a neighbourhood charging node at the end-of-trip, then you get discounts. This helps optimise the use of Queensland's legendary solar input to the grid.
"By teaming up with myEV, AussiePower is better able to manage solar on the grid. myEV entices EV car-share drivers to plug into areas with the highest solar availability, limiting the stress on networks and incentivising sustainable transport!"
Mark French - CEO of AussiePowerNetworks
How myEV Works
Set your trip, see the cars.
Use the app to find what cars are nearby for your trip. These cars are unlocked using the app after selecting an option.
Make your choice, see your route.
Each trip gives you a range of options, with the cost depending on the distance from your location and if the car needs to be relocated to charge from solar at another location. After making your selection the route is shown, including any transfer locations where you will need to swap vehicle at the myEV charging point.
Cheaper trips help us all.
Cheaper trips help us by relocating cars in need of charging. This brings the costs down and makes sure that the cars in the network are always charged by renewable energy.
Got excess solar? Export to myEV!
myEV offers attractive deals for households with excess solar in areas where myEV charging points are used often. Depending on your export threshhold, enjoy credits for the myEV network, or a bonus on the existing export tariff.
