Electrify America is collaborating with a number of companies to bring more than 30 new DC ultra-fast charging stations to various retail and office locations in seven states.
Electrify America, the EV charging network born out of the Volkswagen Dieselgate settlement, announced it will install these new charging stations including grocery chains Kroger and Save Mart.
The network will also install fast charging stations at a number of real estate investment companies — Federal Realty Investment Trust, Fulcrum Property, ShopCore Properties, ValueRock Realty Partners, The Macerich Company and Washington Prime Group, and Pan-Cal Corporation.
The majority of these new locations (more than 20 of the sites) will be based in California. The rest of the stations will be popping up in Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Virginia and Washington. Exact locations were not given.
Electrify America is still saying it plans to “install or have under development 484 charging station sites featuring more than 2,000 ultra-fast chargers by July 2019.”
The VW subsidiary is investing $2 billion over 10 years in EV infrastructure and education, and in the first phase of its investment, it aims to install charging stations in 29 metro areas and along high-traffic corridors in 46 states and Washington D.C. by the end of 2021.
In February, the charging network announced it had topped 100 charging sites, with 465 chargers. Its website now says that as of April, it has “140 fast charging stations located on major routes across the country.” Electrify America’s chargers range in power from 150 kW up to 350 kW.
