Electrify America has announced that they've broken ground on charging stations in two new states, South Dakota and Wyoming.


Reston, VA (October 27, 2021) – Electrify America, the nation’s largest open ultra-fast DC charging network for electric vehicles (EV), today announced the construction groundbreaking of charging stations in two new states: South Dakota and Wyoming. These new charging locations build on Electrify America’s more than 670 charging stations in the U.S. and represent the company’s continued rapid expansion, bringing its presence to 47 states and the District of Columbia.

“More people are choosing electric vehicles for their daily transportation needs. At the same time, we are accelerating plans to more than double our current EV charging network by the end of 2025,” said Anthony Lambkin, Senior Director, Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Operations, Electrify America. “The new stations in South Dakota and Wyoming represent our commitment to build a robust national network of charging stations where EV drivers can go anywhere with confidence.”

Electrify America uses data, analytics and customer insights to plan the most effective charging station locations possible, and these new charging stations are no exception. Each site will be conveniently located near retail or dining amenities to ensure that customers can easily incorporate EV charging into their daily lives.

Once the charging stations are complete, EV drivers with capable vehicles will enjoy charging speeds up to 150kW or 350kW – the fastest charging speeds available today – depending on the location. The new sites will be located at:

  • South Dakota: Wall Conoco Gas Station - 311 South Blvd., Wall (two 150kW stations and two 350kW stations)
  • Wyoming: Smith’s Food and Drug - 906 Camel Drive, Gillette (two 150kW stations and two 350kW stations)
Building on this momentum, Electrify America plans to add additional chargers in South Dakota and Wyoming over the next year and a half.

The new stations are part of Electrify America’s overall expansion plans through 2025, during which the company expects to complete more than 1,700 charging stations with over 9,500 individual chargers in 49 states and the District of Columbia.
