  1. Electrify America EV Charging Payment SNAFU

    Charging Stations Discussion

    Charging Stations Discussion
    This week a friend on an EV road trip became stranded at the Herkimer NY EA DCFC when all four units failed to work. How can we all help each other to try to prevent this from happening again? What can we do? EA can’t fix what they do not know is broken, unlike a gas station the EA host...
