Electrify America’s Ultra-Fast Electric Vehicle Chargers now Operational at Sacramento International Airport

City-wide charging network part of more than $40 Million “Green City” Investment in Sacramento

Sacramento, CA (October 2, 2019) – Marking California’s second annual Clean Air Day today, Electrify America announces that eight (8) new ultra-fast electric vehicle (EV) chargers are now fully operational next to the gas station at the entrance to Sacramento International Airport (SMF).

The chargers provide fee-based EV charging available to all airport customers, offering the first-ever certified liquid cooled-cable 150 to 350 kilowatt (kW) DC Fast Chargers. “Electrify America is pleased to be able to provide an ultra-fast charging infrastructure that consumers at the airport need, further solidifying SMF as a major regional mobility hub,” said Richard Steinberg, senior director of marketing, communications and Green City initiatives, Electrify America. “As more electric vehicles come into the market, we aim to fulfill the charging services required for next generation clean mobility.”

The project is part of Electrify America’s more than $40 million “Green City” investment in Sacramento—Sac-to-Zero. Since last November, the Sac-to-Zero initiative has introduced a slate of new zero emission vehicle (ZEV) services to the City, including Envoy and Gig car share programs, 13 new EV charging stations, and soon-to-launch public EV bus and shuttle services to be operated by SacRT and Yolo County Transit District.

Highlights of Electrify America’s new EV infrastructure in the greater Sacramento area include:

  • 13 EV charging stations offering over 50 chargers citywide, many at popular retailers
  • Charging infrastructure includes 50Kw, 150kW, and 350kW-powered chargers that can charge a capable vehicle in under 30 minutes, allowing nearly all EVs on the road today to plug in and charge
  • Sacramento’s open network of DC Fast Chargers is among the highest concentration of any city in the US, by population
  • Drivers can manage their entire charging session from their smart phone with Electrify America’s mobile app

“Sacramento County approved the airport charging site last year because we believe these types of state-of-the-art solutions are critical to the future mobility demands of our residents,” said Supervisor Phil Serna, District 1, and California Air Resources Board member. “Constituents want the convenience of charging their electric vehicles all across Sacramento and that includes at Sacramento International Airport.”
