Electrify America, the largest open direct current (DC) fast-charging network in the US will work with Love’s Travel Stops, the US’ industry-leading travel stop network, to bring public ultra-fast electric vehicle (EV) charging stations to seven locations in six US states.
The seven charging stations, located in Oklahoma, New Mexico, Utah, Florida, New York and Arizona, will have a combined 28 EV chargers and be available for public use by early 2021; five locations are already open. The most recent Love’s station opening in Salina, Utah, helped complete a cross-country route of Electrify America chargers spanning from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C.
Depending on the location, Love’s customers will have access to chargers ranging in power from 150 kW to 350 kW. Electric vehicles capable of accepting a 350 kW charge can add up to 20 miles of range per minute, helping alleviate range anxiety that many consumers associate with EV road trips. Through these installations at Love’s Travel Stops, Electrify America is helping EV drivers charge up quickly and get back on the road with confidence.
