Dai Technologies Corporation’s expertise is electric vehicle (EV) adoption and EV charger infrastructure development. Founded in 2018, DaiTechCorp’s model is a turnkey solution that helps residential and commercial properties adopt charging stations for a property, connect to programs and benefits, and install EV stations. With a mission to provide urban communities (people and businesses) equitable access to the EV charger infrastructure, DaiTechCorp removes physical and financial impediments that discourage investments in the EV charger infrastructure in densely populated communities.

Inspiration to Start Company
My desire for a new Electric Vehicle was tamped down by this reality: my side of town lacked an EV charger infrastructure. Range Anxiety and personal safety were real concerns that actually discouraged me from purchasing an electric vehicle. The local market at that time had no desire to serve me and the communities I am most familiar with, so I founded Dai Technologies Corporation.
