Electrify America has successfully completed the first leg of its largest open DC fast-charging network in the U.S.
The second route should be completed by this September and it will give EV drivers and owners a fast-charging network that spans from coast to coast.
The new cross-country route spans 11 states and over 2,700 miles to take drivers from Los Angeles to the nation’s capital, Washington D.C.
Electrify America has ensured that its charging stations are on average about 70 miles apart, in metro areas and near highway routes located conveniently by shopping and dining amenities.
It provides high-powered chargers with speeds up to 350kW to get EV drivers fueled up and back on their way quicker than ever.
By the end of summer, EV drivers will be able to travel across the southern portion of the U.S., from Jacksonville to San Diego, on interstate highways starting near I-10 and finishing along I-8.
Electrify America already offers a major route covering much of the East Coast via Interstate 95 from Portland-Maine, to Miami-Florida, and has completed a West Coast route along Interstate 5 from Seattle-Washington to San Diego-California.
To date, Electrify America has more than 435 operational charging stations with over 1,900 DC fast chargers, and another 100+ sites in development.
Of the completed charging stations, more than 300 are located near major highways to accommodate regional and cross-country travel.
In 2019 alone, Electrify America opened DC fast-charging stations at an accelerated pace of approximately 1.2 per business day.
By the end of 2021, the company plans to install or have under development approximately 800 total charging stations with about 3,500 DC fast chargers.
