1,000 DC Fast Chargers Are Coming To TravelCenters of America

• by Mark Kane

TravelCenters of America Inc. (TA), a full-service travel center network founded in 1972, announced an agreement with Electrify America to expand electric vehicle charging infrastructure.

According to the press release, TA intends to offer fast charging service at select TA/Petro locations, starting this year.

The goal is to install approximately 1,000 individual chargers (with an output of up to 350 kilowatts) at 200 locations along major highways over five years, so by 2028. That would be some 200 new chargers at 40 locations each year on average, but we don't know whether the expansion will be linear (it might be cautious initially).
