  1. I watched the whole interview and the Fully Charged Podcast missed a big opportunity. They should have brought in a different (or guest) host from the US who has firsthand experience with Electrify America to ask Mr. Barrosa some tough questions.

    The whole interview presented just like a puff piece with no hard questions asked by Robert Llewelyn since he didn’t have firsthand experience (he lives in the UK).

  2. The comments on YouTube are rather telling:

    ​

    >Now if half of them would work when you pull up to charge that would be a miracle. I have a station where I live and it has 4 chargers.. 2 are always down and the other 2 are limited to 38kw! Hopefully EA gets this figured out before Tesla opens up their network to all other cars.

    >Electrify America needs to prioritize making sure their chargers actually work when people try to use them if they have any hope of being successful…
    >
    >It’s impressive the number of new chargers EA is putting up, but I’m noticing they are lacking on maintenance. I travel up, down, and across California from Las Vegas….. I’m noticing existing sites not fully functioning…. Baker California is always having power outages. Particularly the EA and Tesla stations.
    >
    >I’m happy more chargers are being installed but they need to work on maintence. A somewhat nearby EA station for me has had 3/4 or 4/4 broken chargers for a couple of months now. The last time I went just to check on things another person was charging their car and the charging cable they used was beyond conerningly hot. The last time 1/4 stalls worked it would on charge my car at 30kW.

    >EA…. the single biggest killer of EV adoption ! (*ouch!*)
    >
    >Having an interviewer who hasn’t used the ElectrifyAmerica or ElectrifyCanada networks means Robert is making a lot of assumptions based on his UK and European experience and thinking they apply to the state of affairs in the US and Canada. Way too many softballs thrown. Or maybe he doesn’t want to annoy the show’s sponsors of which EA is apparently among them?
    >
    >they have completely dropped the ball. theres a reason every single ev youtube channel is talking about the state of charging…..its not good.
    >
    >In fairness, it’s far better than 4-5 years ago before EA launched. But there is a lot of improvement needed.
