DETROIT, Aug. 30, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — After a successful launch, startup company Vehya announced the formation of a select panel of expert advisors who will now help the firm continue down a clear path toward supporting the burgeoning U.S. electric vehicles (EV) industry. Vehya focuses specifically on recruiting, training, and deploying green power workers that install and maintain EV charging stations.
