Electrify America Installs Its First DC Fast-Charging Station in North Dakota

A few more are in the pipeline to encourage EV adoption nationwide.

Published November 17, 2023

The creation of a truly nationwide charging network in the US is underway as Electrify America installs its first DC fast-charging station in North Dakota.. Currently, EA chargers are available in 47 states.

The new site is located in Jamestown (The Shoppes at Jamestown, 2617 8th Ave) and will support EV drivers traveling along Interstate 94. The station has a total of six DC fast chargers, called “hyper-fast” by Electrify America, as they can supply up to 350 kilowatts of power.

In the near future, Electrify America intends to open one more station in North Dakota – in Grand Forks, near Interstate 29. Two more stations are expected to come online in 2024.

Brandy Mathie, the director of site acquisition and portfolio management at Electrify America, said:

“With our entrance into North Dakota, EV drivers are now able to enjoy hyper-fast charging speeds in 47 states. This is a significant milestone in making EV ownership accessible to all communities.”

The company says in its statement that the expansion “is part of Electrify America’s mission to encourage EV adoption by building an accessible coast-to-coast DC fast charging network“. More and more chargers will be gradually installed even in less populated areas, which currently don’t have as many electric vehicles.

As we can see in the image below, the Electrify America network will close some gaps during the next few years, although the expansion should never truly end – at least not in the foreseeable future.

As of early November, the network consists of 3,702 fast chargers installed at 843 sites in the United States. The plan is to increase the number of stations to 1,800 and the number of chargers to over 10,000 throughout the United States and Canada by 2026.

With more and more electric cars on the roads, there is a necessity to build additional stations as well as expand existing ones by adding new chargers. Separately, existing chargers will need to be retrofitted with the new NACS charging plugs.

The chargers are available for vehicles compatible with the Combined Charging System (CCS1) inlet, while payments are accepted through credit or debit cards, as well as Electrify America’s mobile app. Some EVs can also use Plug & Charge payment technology (if enabled on the vehicle side). Pricing varies in real time, depending on the site.
