These +100 locations will play host to plug-in electric vehicle fast-charging stations, as per the previously mentioned settlement with the US government in relation to the diesel vehicle emissions cheating scandal.

The fast-charging stations in question will of course all feature multiple charging points, it should be realized.

Electrify America provides more: “Initial partners include major retail companies Target Corporation, Brixmor Property Group, Kimco Realty Corporation, and DDR Corporation. In addition to these are major convenience and refueling partners including Sheetz, Inc, Casey’s General Stores Inc, and Global Partners LP’s Alltown.

“These chargers are part of Electrify America’s first $500-million, Cycle 1 investment in electric vehicle charging infrastructure, education and access in the US. The company plans to complete 4 investment cycles over the next decade, resulting in a total investment of $2 billion. … Through these relationships and others, Electrify America plans to deploy more than 2,000 DC Fast Chargers at up to 484 stations near retail, dining, parking and other facilities that offer convenience and amenities for EV drivers. All the chargers in this Cycle 1 investment will be installed or under development by the end of the cycle in June 2019.”

This follows on an aforementioned EV fast charger buildout to take place at Walmart stores throughout the USA, which will see more than 100 locations get new charging stations by next summer.
