Electrify America has announced it will install more than 2,800 workplace and residential charging stations by June 2019 in 17 of the biggest US metropolitan areas, part of a $2-billion investment in EV infrastructure and education in the US over the next 10 years.

Electrify America is the Volkswagen subsidiary established to fulfill Volkswagen’s commitments under the Consent Decree resolving its cheating on diesel emissions.

The 2,800 Level 2 charging stations will be located at approximately 500 sites, each with more than one station. Approximately 75% of the new chargers will be located at workplaces, with the remainder at apartment buildings, condominiums and other multi-family properties.

Joining Electrify America in this initiative are SemaConnect, EV Connect and Greenlots. These companies will work with property developers, office facility managers and other real estate site hosts to install, operate and maintain the stations.

The companies have committed to install 35% of all multi-family and workplace sites in California in designated low-income or disadvantaged community areas.
