Electrify Commercial® and Rocky Mountain Power Support Electric Vehicle (EV) Drivers in Utah with 20 New Direct Current Fast-Charging Stations
More than 80 individual chargers capable of speeds up to 350 kilowatts (kW) are coming to the Wasatch Front and other areas of the state
Reston, VA (May 17, 2023) –
Electrify Commercial today announced plans to support Rocky Mountain Power, a division of PacificCorp, with the installation of 20 EV charging stations in Utah. The project will include more than 80 individual chargers at 15 stations in the Salt Lake City area and five stations in surrounding regions, a total of 20 charging stations. As a business unit of Electrify America, Electrify Commercial provides customized end-to-end EV charging solutions to businesses, utility companies, fleet owners, travel centers, and convenience stores.
The new charging stations, owned by Rocky Mountain Power, will be featured on Electrify America’s coast-to-coast “locate a charger” map, which includes over 800 stations and 3,500 individual chargers. Electrify Commercial will provide industry-leading charging equipment, installation, networking, and ongoing operations and maintenance. Each station will have a minimum of four chargers that can charge capable vehicles at speeds up to 350 kW offering speed and convenience for EV drivers. Rocky Mountain Power will set pricing at these charging stations, and customers will be able to access and seamlessly pay for charging through the Electrify America mobile app.
“As electric vehicles continue becoming more mainstream, it’s important to expand access and range confidence in all parts of the country,” said Aaron Young, senior manager, of commercial networks & fleets, at Electrify America. “With a shared commitment to increase EV adoption, reduce tailpipe emissions and improve air quality, we are excited to collaborate with Rocky Mountain Power to deliver 350 kW charging capability to EV drivers in Utah.”
Electrify Commercial presents a unique opportunity for companies like Rocky Mountain Power to own their own charging stations while leveraging Electrify America’s experience building the largest open, DC-fast charging network in the U.S. The collaboration will help Rocky Mountain Power to expand the critical EV infrastructure needed for Utah’s future growth.
“Salt Lake City is the top city in the U.S. to own an electric vehicle, making it more important than ever to provide accessible charging in the region and in other parts of Utah,” said James Campbell, director of innovation and sustainability, Rocky Mountain Power. “Electrify Commercial will play an important role in helping us achieve our electrification goals and enable seamless EV travel throughout the state of Utah.”
The first charging stations from this collaboration are expected to open in 2024 in Salt Lake City, the Wasatch Valley Front, and Moab.
