ISSUE INVOICE TO DRIVER - COSMOS BILLING
COSMOS is a billing solution and access control system for charging stations located in private strata and body corporate car parks. COSMOS is an embedded network billing system designed to generate invoices for charging station operators who provide charging stations located in controlled parking areas of the kind commonly associated with residential apartment and commercial office developments.
Common area car parking in strata and body corporate car parks presents a number of problems for electric vehicle car owners.
Generally speaking, most body corporates are putting the charging stations in visitor car parking bays until such time as the owners request charging stations for their own parking bays. Stations in visitor car parking bays are essentially public charging stations as the drivers cannot be identified. These stations need to be connected to a pay as you go billing system such as the Charge Star platform described above. Private charging stations which are installed in designated car parking bays assigned to individual drivers can be locked down to one driver using RFID card access. These stations can be connected to an invoicing billing system. The drivers are billed in arrears.
