Electrify America, the company building a network of high speed chargers across the country, announced that it is partnering with the state of Arizona to bring its chargers all of the state.
Electrify America’s commercial arm, Electrify Commercial, is handling the project to support the Arizona Public Serice Company.
A total of 20 new fast chargers will be installed at four different locations. These CCS chargers are capable of 150 to 350 kW charging speeds.
The stations themselves will be owned by the Arizona Public Service Company, and they’ll be networked and accessible through the Electrify America app.
“We are proud to help Arizona Public Service achieve their goal of expanding access to reliable, convenient ultrafast charging in areas of the state not yet served,” said Rachel Moses, director, commercial services at Electrify America. “We launched Electrify Commercial to address a clear demand across sectors for customized charging solutions, and we look forward to implementing a strategy tailored specifically to APS’ customer’s needs.”
These charging stations should be available early next year, and will feature all of the new cool features that come with EA chargers, including the direct payment charging feature found on new Porsche and Audi models, plus the Mustang Mach-E and others.
More charging stations means there is less range anxiety. When people see these chargers when they are out and about, they’ll more likely consider an electric vehicle as their next purchase. When the right incentive structure is in place, people ultimately buy EVs.
Electrify America’s network is growing quickly, with reliability that is becoming on par with Tesla’s fantastic Supercharger infrastructure.
When launched, the Arizona stations will be in Show Low, Globe, Payson, Prescott, and Sedona.
