Electric vehicle drivers looking for a public charging location now have more options. Electrify America has 105 electric vehicle charging sites with 465 chargers which are operational and open to the public.
Since installing its first ultra-fast DC fast charging site in Chicopee, MA in May 2018, Electrify America has accelerated the pace of installations nationwide.
Electrify America’s progress includes:
• 105 charging sites with 465 chargers operational and open to the public;
• An additional 42 charging sites with 189 chargers which have been constructed and waiting to be energized by utility companies;
• An additional 85 charging sites with 393 chargers in active construction;
• An additional 73 charging sites and 341 chargers with approved permits scheduled for construction; and
• An additional 179 charging sites in design and engineering;
• Total of 484 charging sites secured for Cycle 1.
“With more than 105 operational EV charging stations, Electrify America has reached a key milestone as we are accelerating the pace of installations across the country,” said Brendan Jones, chief operating officer at Electrify America. “These installations mean that consumers in all parts of the country now have greater access to charging and that access can help drive the awareness and adoption of zero-emissions vehicles.”
Electrify America plans to install or have under construction 484 charging station sites with more than 2,000 ultra-fast chargers by July 1, 2019. The station sites will be located in 17 metros and along high-traffic corridors in 42 states – including two cross-country routes.
With a focus on both future and present-day electric vehicles, Electrify America’s chargers have a range in power from 50 kilowatts (kW) – the most commonly used charging power today – to 150 kW and up to 350kW, which is capable of charging a vehicle at speeds up to 20 miles per minute. At 305 charging sites either open or in the construction process, the Electrify America network represents almost a 300 megawatt capacity.
