We have a challenge for you. Look around and think about how much electricity surrounds you. Power lines, lights, signs, outlets, etc. Imagine how far you would have to go to be completely away from electricity. It's difficult right? Especially for those in urban areas.
But if power is all around us, all the time, why is it so difficult to find charging for electric vehicles?
This question is what sparked Esmond Goei, CEO and Co-Founder of Power Hero, to wonder, “Why are we reinventing the gas station model for electric vehicles (EVs)? If power is everywhere, all we need are more intelligent solutions to share it.”
As the world transitions to electric vehicles, access to charging remains the number one barrier to growth. Power Hero is a California-based hardware and software company committed to creating a smarter EV charging grid.
- Esmond Goei, CEO & Co-Founder has proven M&A experience and an IPO track record.
- Rob Kent, CMO & Co-Founder is an IoT innovator of connected medical devices and experienced CEO.
- Power Hero is building a robust patent portfolio at the cutting-edge of innovation, with 4 granted patents and several more pending.
- The EV market is projected to reach $451.60B in 2023 and grow to $846.70B by 2027.
Overnight Charging: Much like an iPhone, EV owners want to plug their car in at night and wake up to a full charge. But personal EV wall chargers are a luxury of single family home owners. For 100M Americans living in apartments and urban areas, installing those requires high-amp 240V wiring which is intrusive and expensive to install. Leaving one of the most enthusiastic segments of the market to find slow 110V plugs or public charging.
Public Charging: Simply put, it's hard to find. There are no big signs like gas stations. Very few are networked and even those are dispersed among several different apps. Those who need public charging are challenged to find it. If they do, they have no way to reserve them or assess availability.
Power Hero's innovative, patented technology was developed to create a world where anyone can get up to 100 miles of charging range overnight on an existing 120V circuit.
We envision any existing un-networked charger being immediately networked and made public. Allowing businesses, retailers, and even homeowners the opportunity to make chargers public and generate revenue.
We believe these meaningful solutions will allow for the rapid scaling of both personal and public charging with far less impact on infrastructure.
Finally a powerful overnight solution designed for any apartment or condo dweller. PowerPac is designed to take 120V power in and banks it while you are gone. When you return, PowerPac is designed to dish that power back to you at 240V speed, then reverts to regular 120V charging.
PowerPac is being designed so it can be dropped onto any existing 120V circuit with no expensive rewiring to buildings and parking garages.
Is designed to make any non-networked charger a connected and reservable charging station — easy for anyone to find. We believe Cameo is ideal for government agencies wishing to aggregate all charging onto a single network. We believe it has the potential to be an instrumental piece in opening up private chargers (homeowners and businesses) to the public domain.

Innovations Happening in the Electric Vehicle Charging Space
Unfortunately, they require heavier wiring and voltage requirements that involve expensive installations. It’s very unlikely landlords will spend that kind of money for people renting in multi-unit residences, like apartment buildings. However, PowerPac is designed to work on existing standard 120V circuits accessible just about anywhere there is power.
120V plugs charge EVs very slowly – delivering about 4 miles of range per hour. But PowerPac is being designed to amplify the effect by storing power for up to 12 hours while you go to work. Then delivering that charge back to your car like a level 2 charger when you return. PowerPac is being designed to allow urban dwellers a way to bank up to 100 miles of range every night.
The driver will need to connect Power Hero with their landlord, where our customer service team will coordinate approval for the installation. Power Hero incentivizes landlords with a revenue stream that covers power costs plus some additional monthly income. Power Hero also intends to establish local incentives from municipalities and power companies to further incentivize landlords.
PowerPac can be purchased or rented directly from Power Hero. Power Hero will also distribute to auto dealerships who can easily finance PowerPacs with the purchase of a vehicle. PowerPac will be delivered and installed by one of our certified local partners.
Cameo allows any unnetworked charger to be easily networked so it can be located, reserved, and provisioned for specific people or public transactions. We believe this provides an opportunity to accelerate two significant events in the market:
1) The growth of P2P charging networks. More and more people are sharing chargers to include individuals and businesses. Cameo allows anyone to network any charger for easy remote management.
2) Geographically centralized EV charging networks. Until now, connectivity hasn’t been a meaningful tool to make charging more accessible. No one wants to run ethernet to all these dumb level 2 chargers. But Cameo now finally allows for instant networking of any charger. We believe this will enable cities, states, and counties to make thousands of chargers public instantly. These entities are primary targets for Cameo.
This we hope is the norm some day and the world is full of smaller chargers that allow you to top-off everywhere you park. Cameo is a key piece to network these chargers, enable reservations, and provision transactions. Once a true marketplace is established, the private enterprise can step up to outpace expensive government infrastructure projects.
By 2030, it's forecasted that there will be over 25M EVs, still nowhere close to replacing all the gas powered cars on the road. This market is poised for high growth over the next 20 years. Even in a competitive market, all participants benefit at high growth rates. Additionally, Power Hero addresses significant unmet needs in this market with robust patent protections.
In addition, we have had a good engineering relationship with Arrow Electronics, a multi-billion-dollar global contract manufacturing company who are desirous of manufacturing our Cameo and extending credit to us. Such credit will reduce the need for equity capital.
Power hero is a low cost and smart solution with the potential to deploy thousands of public chargers without significant infrastructure expenses.
In the case of a potential acquisition, which is not guaranteed, we believe the acquirer is getting both compelling market products and strategic patents that can hamstring competitors. We complement many products and services oriented to EV and travel.
Suitors potentially range from the hospitality, travel, auto, surveillance, energy, and even the advertising and electronics industries. Consider also the fact that most auto manufacturers are committed to growing their EV business and none, other than Tesla, has its own network of charging stations. We believe this makes Power Hero an attractive alternative – especially leveraging PowerPac to gain an upper hand on the underserved market of apartment dwellers.

FEEDBACK FROM CITIES AND YOU!
We’ve been traveling up and down California talking to stakeholders from different cities.
Some of the best feedback we get is about how PowerPac will allow people to draw power off-peak when costs are lower. PowerPac evenly banks power throughout the day and can be remotely managed to load up off-peak. If every EV driver hits the grid at 220V and 40 amps at 5:30 PM, that puts massive pressure on the grid. PowerPac will be a big help to utilities managing power demand to a growing base of EV drivers.
Also, solutions like mPower and PowerPac can be set up as demand-response and virtual power plant solutions. Giving utilities the ability to manage and avoid capacity outages. The utilities pay for this in terms of both readiness and actual usage – providing another revenue stream and a better return on investment.
We love this kind of feedback! Please provide feedback when you invest and let us know where YOU think we can make the biggest impact.
