Virginia-based charging network provider Electrify America has opened a new electric vehicle (EV) charging station in Pearl City in Oahu, Hawaii.
According to the company, the charging station is its first in Hawaii and will deliver a rapid charging solution for EV drivers on the island.
With four chargers that can provide up to 150 kW of power to compatible vehicles, the new station is a crucial part of Electrify America’s expansion initiative to boost the confidence of EV drivers by increasing the range of their vehicles, the company adds.
EV drivers can pay for charging services at the station using either a credit or debit card, or via the Electrify America mobile app, which drivers to locate a station, commence a charge and track their charging session’s progress, all from their smartphones for a smooth end-to-end experience.
With the addition of this charging station, Electrify America has expanded its presence to 47 states and the District of Columbia in the U.S.
Electrify America, a Reston, Virginia-based open DC fast charging network and a subsidiary of Volkswagen Group of America, says it is investing over $2 billion in zero-emission vehicle infrastructure, education and access.
Electrify America and Electrify Canada expect to have more than 1,800 total charging stations with over 10,000 individual chargers in the U.S. and Canada combined by 2026.
Earlier this year, fueling and rest station chain TravelCenters of America announced a new partnership with Electrify America to locate about 1,000 direct-current fast charging systems at its TA/Petro locations. The first charging stations will be launched this year and eventually locate at close to 200 TA/Petro stations.
