Following the decision from the CEO of Tesla to dissolve the Supercharger team, industry experts speculated that many of these experienced individuals would be quickly hired by other companies. It has now been revealed that Revel, a provider of rideshare and charging services, has appointed Edward Noseworthy to lead their team focused on designing and constructing EV infrastructure.

With a background of seven years at Tesla, where he managed charging design activities in the Northeast region, Noseworthy is set to leverage his knowledge in charging development and enhancing customer interactions for Revel’s expanding fast charging network in locations such as New York and the Bay Area.

Revel, based in Brooklyn, offers an all-electric rideshare platform across all five boroughs of New York City. Its distinctive bright blue fleet, comprising vehicles from Tesla and other brands, is supported by a fast charging network currently comprising 54 chargers at three locations in Brooklyn and Queens. These fast charging hubs are accessible to the general public, operating around the clock and accommodating all models of EVs.

Revel already has over a dozen sites at different stages of design and construction. The company is aiming to scale its network to encompass more than 300 chargers in New York City and over 200 in the Bay Area by 2025. As part of its expansion strategy, Revel is actively seeking locations that were previously abandoned by Tesla in NYC.

The public fast charging hubs created by Revel are strategically positioned in neighborhoods where rideshare drivers reside and operate. In a recent development, Revel and Uber have announced a joint initiative, with Uber committing to minimum driver utilization levels on its platform and Revel offering charging discounts of up to 25 percent to Uber drivers.

Revel is set to inaugurate its next location this summer, featuring 10 fast charging stalls at Pier 36 in Lower Manhattan. Future sites on the radar include Maspeth in Queens, the South Bronx, and LaGuardia Airport.

Edward Noseworthy, now serving as Revel’s Director of Design and Construction, expressed his enthusiasm about contributing to the deployment of hundreds of additional Revel chargers across New York and the Bay Area in the upcoming year. He remarked, “Revel has set a significant precedent for the impact of EV infrastructure in a city like New York, ushering in an era of electrification for tens of thousands of rideshare drivers.”

Frank Reig, the co-founder and CEO of Revel, commended the efforts of Revel’s infrastructure team for addressing complex challenges unique to urban environments. He emphasized the importance of Ed’s role in transforming these challenges into opportunities within the industry.
