Tesla Partners with ChargerHelp Electric Vehicle Charging Reliability Platform! to investigate the status of various chargers in the company’s destination charger network.
ChargerHelp! is an app-based dispatch and deployment system that helps resolve issues with broken or unusable electric vehicle charging stations. The company offers on-demand repairs and maintenance assistance from local labor, who can come and fix a faulty EV charger at Tesla’s destination charger network.
Tesla’s Destination Charging Network includes more than 35,000 Wall Connectors at Destination Charging sites, which include hotels, restaurants and resorts. They are not as powerful as Tesla superchargers as they only offer 22kW of power. Tesla’s high-powered V3 Supercharger offers 250kW for comparison.
ChargerHelp! said its partnership with Tesla will begin in California, as the platform will survey destination stations to provide critical data points and insight into overall station performance.
Perhaps the biggest issue facing EV adoption is charger reliability. The issue prompted California Governor Gavin Newsom to draft the EV Charging Reliability Transparency Act, a bill supported by ChargerHelp!, which could help solve most vehicle charging maintenance issues. electrical. A University of California, Berkley study that found only 72.5% of Bay Area chargers were operational, despite ambitious plans to eliminate ICE car sales by 2035.
“Having confidence that a charging station will work and knowing that if there is a problem, it will be resolved in a timely manner is essential for EV drivers and paramount to the success of the industry,” Kameale C. Terry, LoadHelp! Co-founder and CEO, said.
Electric vehicle chargers are widely available, and companies are working to expand their presence of batteries that can support a variety of cars. Additionally, the United States has funneled billions into expanding electric vehicle charging infrastructure, seeking to build at least 500,000 more EV chargers in the United States, with $7.5 billion in funding.
The White House also announced more than $700 million in private sector commitments for electric vehicle charging infrastructure:
- Toyota announced an additional investment of $2.5 billion in a manufacturing plant in Greensboro, North Carolina.
- Honda and LG Energy Solution announced $4.4 billion joint venture in upcoming US location
- Ford Motor Company announced that it will invest $3.7 billion in assembly plants in Michigan, Ohio and Missouri and create 6,200 jobs.
- Panasonic has announced a $4 billion factory in De Soto, Kansas that will create 4,000 jobs. Panasonic is also reportedly evaluating a similar investment in an additional new battery factory.
- Vinfast announced an investment of more than $5 billion to build electric vehicles and battery packs in North Carolina, which will create 13,000 jobs.
- Hyundai announced a $5.5 billion investment to build electric vehicles and batteries near Savannah, Georgia
- Under the DOE’s Advanced Technology Vehicle Manufacturing Program, the Department of Energy announced a $2.5 billion loan in July 2022 to General Motors for battery manufacturing facilities in Ohio, Tennessee and Michigan.
ChargerHelp! was founded in 2020 and operates at a fixed monthly price per EV charging station, he said.
