Electrify America, the largest open DC fast-charging network in the U.S., announced the opening of its first indoor flagship station available to the public on February 9 at 928 Harrison St. in San Francisco.
Located two blocks from the Bay Bridge, the indoor charging station provides easy access for EV drivers visiting the South Market (SoMa) neighborhood. It features 20 hyper-fast chargers providing up to 350 kilowatts (kW) in charging power. While waiting for their vehicles to charge, customers can make use of the dedicated temperature-controlled lounge areas with food and beverage vending options, complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi and restrooms.
With a focus on the customer experience, the all-new indoor charging station offers EV drivers 24/7 access, round-the-clock monitoring and security, and a lounge area providing customers with comfort and convenience amenities, in addition to 20 of Electrify America’s next-generation chargers.
“We’re committed to making EVs accessible to all, particularly in dense urban areas like San Francisco,” said Robert Barrosa, president and CEO of Electrify America. “Our expertise in building over 250 stations in California and more than 900 in North America uniquely positions us to bring high-quality charging infrastructure directly into communities where people live and work and support EV adoption across the state.”
In 2022, Electrify America introduced “The Charging Station of the Future, Today” – a bold and innovative design concept to create comfortable spaces focused on enhancing the EV driver experience. The Electrify America team leading the station design vision has integrated in-depth customer feedback and insights from trend research and leading architecture and construction consultants to increase the focus in bringing human-centered and unique community-centric design strategies to the charging experience.
Electrify America already has outdoor flagship charging stations in Baker and Santa Clara, California, that have ten or more chargers. The station on Harrison Street is the first station in the Electrify America network to reflect its strategy to build larger stations to meet the growing demand of EV drivers. Electrify America will continue this transition with new flagship charging facilities planned in metro areas nationwide.
