Charge for free at Electrify America stations on Earth Day 2021
On April 22, Earth Day, Electrify America will give electric vehicle owners free charging sessions at all Electrify America ultra-fast-charging stations. The free charging period lasts from midnight EDT on April 22 and lasting through 3 a.m. EDT on April 23.
"Driving electric is an impactful action consumers can take to help reduce their carbon footprint, and Electrify America is excited to offer free charging sessions on Earth Day to celebrate that," said Giovanni Palazzo, president and CEO of Electrify America. "We are proud to help lead an electric vehicle revolution by enabling electric transportation for all Americans, on Earth Day and every day."
Electrify America has more than 589 charging stations across the U.S., with over 2,500 individual DC fast chargers. Since May 2018, the Volkswagen Group company has rapidly expanded, opening an average of four new stations each week. By the end of 2021, Electrify America plans to install or have under development approximately 800 total charging stations with about 3,500 DC fast chargers.
Recently, the charging network introduced 30 solar-powered EV charging stations to its network in the State of California. The locations of the chargers were chosen after the company analyzed communities with the greatest need for charging, existing charging options, and local travel patterns - among other factors.
The off-grid Level 2 (240-volt) chargers are strategically located throughout the Central Valley and inland areas of Southern California in 24 cities. Electrify America identifies more than half the chargers as being in disadvantaged and low-income communities.
Additionally, Jeep has announced a partnership with the charging company to install solar-powered charging stations in places that their audience frequents. Tthe Level 2 charging stations will be at installed Jeep Badge of Honor off-road trailheads around the United States over the next 12 months.
