Electrify America is hard at work building the nation’s largest open DC fast-charging (DCFC) network. To date, we have over 400 ultra-fast DCFC stations and 1,800 chargers online, and we are targeting 800 stations and 3,500 chargers by the end of 2021.

In parallel, Electrify America has begun planning for the third cycle of our $2 billion ZEV Investment Commitment to advance America’s electric mobility future. As we build our plan, Electrify America is eager to hear your thoughts about new ideas and opportunities that could help shape our investments. It’s an exciting road, and we are geared up to encourage and support more drivers to go electric by building a robust national charging network and increasing electric vehicle education and access across America. We look forward to hearing from you.

Each ZEV investment cycle offers Electrify America the opportunity to consider new information, revisit past assumptions, and solicit feedback. We will update our analytical models, monitor new technology and public policy developments, track evolving consumer expectations, and explore the merit of allowable Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) Investments during the planning and development phase of each ZEV Investment Plan. Electrify America is a data-driven company, and we will use relevant and appropriate information to optimize the impact of our investments.

To assist in drafting our Cycle 3 National and California ZEV Investment Plans for the next 30-month investment period, which applies for the time period of January 2022 through June of 2024, we are specifically looking for the following types of input:
