Project Summary
Elevator Pitch

Concise Summary: Help us pitch this solution! Provide an explanation within 3-4 short sentences.

CSI is here to get the EVCS installed at your local parking lot. Our goal is to make sure there is a EVCS every 30km. There will be so many charging stations installed that the consumer won't have to ask "where do I charge my car?"

About Project

Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?

All we need is the equipment to get started. We have a large customer base ready to have EVCS installed. The potential for this to become huge is there since all the auto manufactures and govenments are on board to make this A reality and not a bust.
Impact: How does it Work

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

The average person only travels 30km a day which make Electric cars the new phase of transportation. We would like to make a regular customer not have to worry were the next charging station is. We would like to see in 15yrs the same amount of EVCS as normal gas stations.
Sustainability

Marketplace: Who else is addressing the problem outlined here? How does the proposed project differ from these approaches?

There are a few other electric companies on the island that can sell and install the EVCS but none have pushed or marketed it like we have.

Founding Story
