Homeowners can earn an extra £3,000 a year by helping drivers – so YOU ​​can make some money

BRITS can make up to £3,000 a year by renting out their driveway to electric car owners, research suggests.

Homeowners could add at least 20 percent to potential fees if they include a power source, Halfords and rental station Stashbee found.

Fees already range from £5-10 per day to £3,000 per year.

The cost can also increase depending on the location of the rented driveway in the country.

And renting driveways and garages to commuters, shoppers and other motorists is a growing market.

Congestion charge zones, city centers, and roads near soccer groups and other venues are popular for driveway rentals due to parking restrictions.

There are also no charging stations or parking spaces for the rapid sale of electric vehicles.

Richard Bruce, Halfords Motoring Director, said: “We believe private driveways could be one of the ways the UK can close the electric charging gap.

“Highway infrastructure is definitely moving in the right direction, but progress has been slower in residential areas where roadside charging is more of a challenge.

“Renting out driveways and charging stations by homeowners could go some meaningful way towards solving the problem.”

Around 40 per cent of UK homeowners do not have access to off-street parking and the UK has just 15 per cent of the electric vehicle charging points it needs to reach its net-zero target by 2050.

And worry about where to charge is the number one concern deterring Brits from switching to electric vehicles, according to the Department for Transport.
