About Orange

We formed Orange to bring accessible, affordable and convenient EV charging to all multi-unit properties. To make this possible, we created a hardware and software solution which automates transactions between EV drivers and property owners. We create a positive ROI for property owners, while keeping energy costs affordable for drivers. Our mission is to bring accessible EV charging to all regardless of where they live.

Jon has always been fascinated with the intersection of design and manufacturing.  An early love for cars lead to the study of mechanical engineering and energy, where the global impacts of the technology we enjoy are studied and quantified. Transitioning between roles at the automotive giant BMW and the earth shaker Tesla has reinforced the mission that change isn’t only possible but also necessary.
