TravelCenters of America Adds EV Charging
TravelCenters of America Inc., a full-service travel center network, announced an agreement to add electric vehicle charging.
The agreement was signed with Electrify America to offer electric vehicle charging at select TA/Petro locations with the first stations planned to be deployed in 2023.
With a goal of installing approximately 1,000 individual chargers at 200 locations along major highways over five years, TA will purchase Electrify America’s DC (Direct Current) fast chargers. Electrify America will install, operate and maintain the charging stations at TA/Petro locations through its Electrify Commercial business unit.
The network of charging stations will be open to almost all brands of EV vehicles and can deliver up to 350 kW to capable vehicles. The new charging stations help to provide range confidence to EV motorists traveling long distances by expanding access to hyper-fast charging.
“TA’s large locations with expansive amenities are attractive to EV motorists and we are committed to expanding our EV charging infrastructure to accommodate this growing number of EV drivers over time,” said Jon Pertchik, Chief Executive Officer of TravelCenters of America in a statement. “Our agreement with best-in-class Electrify America provides an unmatched offering of excellence in locations, service and support.”
