Electrify America Announces Kilowatt-Hour Pricing in 23 States and DC
As we all probably recognize, electric vehicles (EVs) are nothing without their chargers. And more and more EV owners are preferring Kilowatt-Hour charging rates over the standard per-minute rates readily available.
In a recent upgrade, EV charging station company Electrify America announced it’s making Kilowatt-Hour pricing available for its EV chargers in 23 states and Washington DC. These chargers are based on the actual amount of energy used, rather than the amount of time a person is spending charging their vehicle.
You asked. We listened! Kilowatt-Hour pricing is now available in 23 states & DC (and reduced rates in states with minute-based pricing). Check it out here: https://t.co/QwGjguYcpe pic.twitter.com/FUGdI9otmf

Giovanni Palazzo, president and chief executive officer of Electrify America told the press, “Electrify America has listened to feedback from electric vehicle owners, potential customers, and longtime industry advocates. As a result we have developed a new pricing structure that is fair, consistent, and recognizes the increasing customer demand for kilowatt-hour pricing.” Palazzo continued “With the new pricing, we deliver a simplified charging experience that shows new and existing customers how easy it is to own an EV.”
Electrify America has over 470 charging stations across the country, with more than 2,000 fast chargers in DC, making them one of the largest networks of EV chargers out there. The company hopes to have 800 total charging stations with 3,500 chargers by December 2021.
With this move, Electrify America is continuing to make EV charging available and accessible en masse, and the hope is that news like this and more will continue to propel our world into sustainable transportation.
