Those who have invested in or are looking into making the switch to a more innovative, cost-effective and environmentally friendly means of transport now have the option to carry full access to the local electric vehicle charging network in their pockets.

The Switch Network, the organisation behind Fiji’s push towards electric vehicles, has launched its official app this week in an event held at the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) conference room in Suva.

Switch Network founder Alex Reddaway said of the app and its great range of functions including dynamic load balancing, “There’s huge power in technology. These things can be hugely powerful in the right hands.”

“What this app does, for the private user, you can see all the chargers that are in the vicinity, you can use the filters to narrow down the type of charging you need, you can see all the pricing.

“You can then top up with M-PAiSA so you have a balance and you can start the charger through the app.

“So, for the user it is the entire charging ecosystem in your pocket.”

This allows a level of convenience for the host of the charging station, eliminating the need to hire additional personnel as station attendants or tellers.

Any company or organisation interested in hosting a charging station need simply reach out to The Switch Network to discuss the installation of a charging dock, opening the door to instantly adding value to the location both in terms of customer pull and profit from the usage of the dock.

“The Switch Network’s ambition is to find partners throughout Fiji who will help us bring to life our vision of a carbon-neutral, locally powered transport ecosystem, and the app really underpins the whole ecosystem, it is the backbone.”
