Electrify America partners with Simon to install ultra-fast EV chargers at more than 30 shopping centers in US
http://www.greencarcongress.com/2018/05 ... simon.html
Electrify America is teaming up with Simon, a global leader in premier shopping, dining, entertainment and mixed-use destinations, to install electric vehicle charging stations at more than 30 Simon centers throughout the US. . . .

The first installation will open in early June at Gulfport Premium Outlets in Gulfport, Mississippi. Other notable Simon locations that will receive Electrify America charging stations include King of Prussia (Philadelphia, PA), San Francisco Premium Outlets (San Francisco, CA), Del Amo Fashion Center (Los Angeles, CA), Ontario Mills (Ontario, CA), Santa Rosa Plaza (Santa Rosa, CA), Florida Mall (Orlando, FL) and South Shore Plaza (Braintree, MA). . . .

At the Simon locations near major highways, Electrify America’s chargers will have a range in power from 50 kW up to 350 kW. Other Simon facilities will offer a range of power from 50 kW to 150 kW, as well as an L2 AC charger to accommodate plug-in hybrids and non-DC-charge capable EVs at most locations.

You'd be most likely to know, but as noted upthread Target is one of the corporations which EA is working with.

Right. Could very well be EA. It would be worth investigating a little. Maybe snap a picture or two, talk to the Target manager, etc if you are curious.

I did take two photos. Finally got a chance to upload them. They do not look like any of the chargers Electrify America is using. There are also no locations in California on their list of "Coming Soon". I guess these are part of another network.

Electrify America picks Black & Veatch, SAI Group as design-build firms for EV fast charging stations
http://www.greencarcongress.com/2018/06 ... tions.html
. . . Black & Veatch and SAI Group each plan to manage the full design, permitting, and construction process in order to deploy more than 2,000 DC fast chargers across 484 sites at or near retail, dining, parking, and other facilities that offer convenience and amenities for EV drivers. All the sites will be installed or under development by June 2019.

Black & Veatch, which specializes in the deployment of energy, water, telecommunications, and smart city infrastructure, has been awarded the site design and construction of Electrify America’s ultra-fast charging stations in 24 states in the Pacific Northwest, Mountain, Central, Midwest, Southeast Central and Southeast regions. Black & Veatch will also construct sites in California, where the company maintains a regional office and has created thousands of jobs.

SAI Group, which has performed work in Alaska, Hawaii, and most states in the continental United States, has been awarded design-build responsibilities for Electrify America’s ultra-fast charging stations in 16 states in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, South-Central, and Southwest regions.
Currently four sites are open, with 18 more 'Coming Soon', which hopefully means ''Under Construction' or at least 'Permitted' rather than "We hope to do it, sometime".

all right! only one more year to go!

uhhhhgg, and I'll guess one stall per DC charger location, with NO enforcement of anti-ICEing laws, and overpriced to boot. win-win-win????

Oh, and low 22-30 kW power. NOT fast. gee, what a great way to get more EVs on the road!

Let's see where this lands in the upcoming 365 days.

I'm such a pessimist when it comes to these type of projects. I've been disappointed for 4 years...

Hate to rain on your parade but the SLOWEST station so far is 50 KW and even those are scheduled to be upgraded later

yep, exactly.

ALL the DC fast chargers here in Oregon are "50 kW". I don't ever see that charging. maybe 40 kW for 2 minutes. LeafSpy has a way of showing what's going on. VERY typically it's 30 kW or lower, EVEN at a 15% charge status. oh well. at least upgrades are coming "later" (rolling eyes).
