Electrify Commercial will provide charging equipment, networking, and customized services to support Arizona Public Service Company (APS) with its Take Charge AZ investment in electric vehicle (EV) fast charging. The project includes five new charging stations with four individual chargers each, for a total of 20 ultra-fast chargers across the state.
The announcement follows the recent launch of Electrify Commercial, a new business unit from Electrify America designed to help deliver EV charging solutions to businesses, utilities, and government entities.
Electrify Commercial will leverage the expertise gained from deploying and operating Electrify America to support APS with site acquisition, design and development, charging equipment and networking, and ongoing operations and maintenance. This collaboration will help APS expand its statewide buildout of EV infrastructure with the addition of ultra-fast chargers that will provide Arizonans with the fastest speeds currently available. With this technology, capable EVs can add up to 20 miles of range per minute.
The new charging stations will be owned by APS and included in Electrify America’s network of more than 535 charging stations and 2,300 ultra-fast chargers. Customers can pay by credit or debit card, or by using the Electrify America mobile app. The app also allows drivers to locate a station, initiate a charge, and remotely monitor a charging session.
With the project already underway, all sites are expected to be available by early 2022 in the following Arizona locations:
