If you live in San Francisco, you’re used to seeing new technology all around. Autonomous vehicles are no longer a strange sight, and electric cars have frequently populated the roads for years. Now, a new development in electric vehicles has made its debut: Electrify America’s Flagship indoor charging station.
The new charging station in San Francisco is located in SoMa and has a total of 20 chargers that will remain open 24/7. The charging station offers an indoor lounge with free Wi-Fi for customers. Costumers will also find restrooms and food and beverage vending options. The chargers are 350 kW, which provides a fast charge for vehicles. The new station will open on Friday, February 9, at 928 Harrison St in San Francisco.
Electrify America is currently the largest open DC fast-charging network in the US, with 800 stations and 3,500 DC fast-chargers. The company has invested over 2 billion in zero-emission vehicle infrastructure and is currently operating in 46 states. The charging stations are open network, meaning most electric cars should be able to use the stations. The company installed its first charging station back in 2018.
“We’re committed to making EVs accessible to all, particularly in dense urban areas like San Francisco,” said Robert Barrosa, president and CEO of Electrify America. “Our expertise in building over 250 stations in California and more than 900 in North America uniquely positions us to bring high-quality charging infrastructure directly into communities where people live and work and support EV adoption across the state.”
The new station is part of Electrify America’s plan to create more comfortable charging experiences for drivers, as evidenced by the various amenities in the new station. There are many different charging stations in San Francisco, with the most concentrated in the downtown area, similar to Electrify America’s newest station.
