"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," David Tyrie, head of advanced solutions and digital banking at Bank of America, said in a statement. "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 customers will have access to ultra-fast charging systems that range in power from 150 kW to 350 kW, which can add up to 20 miles of range per minute of charging.
