New Season of EV Chat Podcast Goes “Back to School” to Demystify the World of Electric Vehicles

Podcast is hosted by EV infrastructure pioneer Rue Phillips, powered by 365 Pronto, Inc. 

SCOTTSDALE, AZ (November 4, 2021)—Electric vehicle (EV) development and investment continue to accelerate, bringing a new vocabulary of terms and concepts. Those new to EVs may feel like they must learn a whole new language before they buy their next car—and even the savviest of EV fans have new things to learn.  

EV Chat, a podcast sponsored by 365 Pronto, Inc., and host Rue Phillips, are here to help. In its second season, EV Chat is taking listeners “back to school” to demystify the world of electric cars, one term, acronym, and concept at a time.  

“For more than 30 years, I have worked to help get as many people as we can into EVs,” Phillips said. “I am proud of the progress we’ve made, but we have a long way to go to make EVs a more accessible and approachable mode of transportation. That’s why we’re taking the second season of EV Chat back to school, and offering our listeners solid EV information, wherever they get podcasts.” 

Phillips has been recognized as a pioneer and leader in the EV infrastructure, solar, and renewable energy industries. In his early years, he collaborated with Ozzy Osbourne and Black Sabbath before he transitioned into the electrical space, where he installed the first GM EV1 private electric vehicle service equipment (EVSE).  

Current listeners can expect the same EV enthusiasm and rock-and-roll flair they’ve come to love, and those new to the show and EVs can learn from Phillips and his expert guests. 

Each episode dives into key topics and components of EV infrastructure and helps everyone get up to speed about the past, present, and future of EVs. Special guests include Dr. Abas Goodarzi, CEO of U.S. Hybrid; Sue Gander, Project Manager of the World Resources Institute’s Electric School Bus Initiative; James Tillman, VP of Business Development at Brytemove; Paul Vosper, CEO of JuiceBar; and more. 

“When you’ve worked with EVs as long as I have, you know that there’s always something new to discover about how we’re electrifying our transportation,” Phillips added. “This season’s episodes—and our special guests—show us how much we all can continue to learn from each other, no matter whether you’re thinking about your first EV or have had them for years.”  

Phillips is also the co-founder and president of 365 Pronto, Inc., a cleantech platform revolutionizing the operations and maintenance of renewable energy assets.  

EV Chat is available on major podcasting platforms and can be found on Twitter @EV_Chat.

“We’re incredibly excited to add Henry to our executive team,” said Tonn, “he brings the strong leadership we need at this critical inflection point in the company’s growth and along with a network of rich contacts and deep expertise in the solar industry.” 

Most recently, Dziuba was the Chief Commercial Officer at Strata Clean Energy, a leader in utility-scale solar and battery storage development and construction across the US.

Dziuba then took over the role of Chief Commercial Officer in 2018 driving and optimizing the integration and alignment between all revenue-related functions. Proving successful in this, Dziuba’s role later expanded to include the development and expansion of the engineering, procurement, and logistics divisions resulting in a significant construction pipeline as well as the well-published 500MW long-term procurement commitment with LONGi, a major solar panel manufacturer.  

“To be able to land great executive talent from a market leader like Strata,” said Tonn, “really validates the sophistication of our business model and attractiveness of our company. His understanding of the solar space will be incredibly invaluable to leverage 365 Pronto’s ability to deliver mass-scale solutions similar to the nationwide CDMA replacement work we’ve got underway.”  

Previous to Strata, Dziuba was also President and General Manager at SMA America, where he was involved in the development of their market-leading O&M strategy (later implemented globally) and pushed SMA ahead to reach the number one inverter supplier across all North American segments. Before this, he was responsible for setting up and establishing SMA UK Ltd. and also gained critical channel management experience and leadership in his role as National Distribution Manager for Schneider Electric in the UK. 

“I’m thrilled and excited to join the executive team at 365 Pronto. The technology developed by the company offers us a great opportunity to redefine O&M services for both the PV and EV residential and commercial markets and simplify service for portfolio managers and residential customers alike.”  

His start date with 365 Pronto was Monday, May 3rd.
