Will McCoy has joined the Advisory Board at Cincinnati based EV infrastructure company EdgeEnergy. Will is the Founder and CEO of Vehya a Detroit based company focused on delivering EV charging solutions that are designed for business, government entities, and homeowners.

The future of our planet depends on it”, says Will.
“Having Will join our Advisory board is a perfect fit,” says Greg York, President and Founder of EdgeEnergy. “We share a common goal of an equitable and sustainable future built around the EV charging industry. Will has already had an impact on how our team is thinking about our company as we work to deploy charging infrastructure in places without sufficient power infrastructure and we are looking forward to his participation in future projects as we continue to scale our company. Vehya’s online platform that helps EV professionals connect with installation opportunities, helps reduce the time it takes for consumers to find and EV installer and fits well with our product that can be delivered in just a few weeks and eliminates the need for costly power upgrades to install DC fast chargers.”
“As we head into the future where almost everything will depend on renewable energy, companies like EdgeEnergy and Vehya must work together to build and support the infrastructure we need for an equitable and carbon-neutral future,” said McCoy.
