Charging network operator Electrify America has installed more than 120 ultra-fast charging stations at Walmart stores across 34 states. The company plans to continue installing charging stations at Walmart locations in urban areas in 46 states across the US.
The charging stations feature 150 kW and 350 kW DC fast chargers. Most of the stations are strategically located at Walmart stores off major highways, with dozens more planned for major metro areas.
Electrify America is investing $2 billion over the next ten years in EV infrastructure and education. In total, it plans to deploy more than 2,000 chargers across 484 sites on highways and 17 metropolitan areas.
“This milestone marks an important moment in the expansion of our charging station network,” said Brendan Jones, COO at Electrify America. “We look forward to continuing our work with Walmart to make electric vehicle charging faster and more convenient for consumers across the country, and in turn, encourage more adoption of zero-emission vehicles.”
