The new stations are located in Millcreek and Vernal in Salt Lake County. The stations there offer up to 350 kW and are part of the Electrify America network. However, they are owned by Rocky Mountain Power, which is in charge of pricing.

The partners announced in May 2023 that they would set up 20 new charging locations with 80 individual chargers in and around Utah’s capital Salt Lake City. That includes 15 locations in the Salt Lake City area and five sites in surrounding regions.

The background is that Electrify America is known to operate a public fast-charging network in the US but also provides turnkey charging solutions for third parties such as Rocky Mountain Power. Such deals are done through Electrify Commercial, which provides its usual services, including charging equipment, installation, networking, and ongoing operations and maintenance.

Electrify America, which belongs to Volkswagen, was ordered to establish for two billion dollars following the lawsuits surrounding the diesel emission fraud and has come to be known for building the largest open, DC-fast charging network in the United States. Since opening its first charging station in May 2018, the wholly-owned VW subsidiary has added over 3,500 charging points at 800 locations. The goal is to have 10,000 charging stations at 1,800 locations across North America by 2026.
