Electrify America, a company that specializes in ultra-fast charging for electric vehicles (EV), has announced it is teaming up with Bank of America to install electric vehicle charging stations at select U.S. financial center locations.
This marks the first time that Electrify America will install EV charging stations at a bank location.
"As we continue to offer more convenient places to build new charging stations, Bank of America was a natural fit," said Brendan Jones, Electrify America’s chief operating officer. "As one of the largest banks in the country, its locations enable current and future EV drivers to save time by charging their vehicles while visiting a financial center. These new charging sites are also open to any EV driver needing a convenient place to charge their vehicle."
Approximately 40 EV charging stations with a total of 140 EV chargers will be available for use by the end of 2020 at select Bank of America financial center locations in California, Georgia, Florida, Illinois, Oregon, Washington, Virginia, and Massachusetts.
Bank of America customers will be able to access charging systems with a range in power from 150 kilowatt (kW) to 350kW.
"We are focused on making it easier and more convenient for our clients to connect with us in any manner they choose, and we're pleased to partner with Electrify America to offer on-site EV charging stations," said David Tyrie, head of advanced solutions and digital banking at Bank of America. "A low-carbon lifestyle is important to our bank and to the communities we serve, and we are committed to developing and supporting initiatives that can lead to a more sustainable future."
Bank of America has also installed EV charging stations at employee offices. Currently, the company has more than 100 EV charging ports installed at office locations for employee use with more installations planned in 2020.
