DIY Business - How to Setup Your Own WeCharg Station in Minutes!

Follow this guide to learn how easy it is to set up your own business using the power of the Charg Coin (ticker: CHG) platform. If you prefer to set up your own business without any technical skills required, we have prepared a simple order form - here are the links for basic, standard, and off-grid electric vehicle stations. We also recommend watching the first video, below. For the more technically inclined, videos two and three provide even more information, also below. We invite contributions to our hardware and software, all of which is completely open source!

By building a simple Charg Station at affordable cost, you can turn-key your very own enterprise (at any scale) setting up and maintaining E-Vehicle Charg Stations for businesses nearby. If you don’t own your own property, no problem! Just like a “vending machine man,” if you go knock on business doors asking if you can set up an electric vehicle station for free (or whatever cost works best for you), they will often appreciate the benefit to their customers… and you can start earning either Charg Coin (CHG), BTC/LTC/ETH, or fiat currency (USD$, EURO, ETC.) in exchange for helping people recharge their electric cars! Check on your station from time to time and watch more money roll in as you build and expand on your own network of Charg Stations.

Our Onion Omega software has been retired and replaced by our simple, powerful and new Raspberry Pi 4 + image. Think of it as an operating system which is built using the blockchain as the foundation. We are very excited to announce that you may now download the latest CHG for Raspberry Pi operating system here. So click this link!
