The success of public EV charging is only as strong as the charging network and when as many as one-third of the nation’s chargers are offline or broken at any given time, that leads to customer frustration and can literally lead to an EV standstill. In this episode, we talk with a self-made, self-taught, female entrepreneur who is here to help make sure the network is up and running.
Kameale C. Terry, Co-Founder and CEO, ChargerHelp!
“And so, we went out to about 5,000 charging stations across about 45 or 47 states. We found that a third of the infrastructure was inoperable and wasn’t dispensing electricity. We finally had the data to just back up what I knew was true anecdotally. That really drove us to start developing partnerships with some of these network providers and manufacturers to say, ‘Hey, you have a problem. How can we look at solving it?'”
