Tysons Corner Center to add more electric vehicle charging stations

More electric vehicle charging stations are on their way to Tysons Corner Center, though exactly when they’ll arrive and how many there will be remains to be determined.

Right now, locating a station at the mall requires some hunting or the assistance of a mobile app. Of the approximately 11,000 parking spaces, just seven are outfitted with electric vehicle chargers.

“We currently have seven on-site and are making plans for additional charging stations, but the quantity amount is not finalized at this time,” a Tysons Corner Center spokesperson told FFXnow last week.

Mall owner and developer Macerich announced in early June that it will expand the availability of EV charging stations at 12 of its properties in the U.S., including Tysons Corner Center.

The new stations will come as part of Macerich’s ongoing partnership with the Reston-based company Electrify America, which says it hopes to install more than 1,800 total charging stations with over 10,000 chargers across the U.S. and Canada by 2026.

Tysons Corner Center currently has an Electrify America charging station in its Parking Garage C next to Nordstrom. The garage also has a Tesla charging station.

Drivers who use the Electrify America stations can pay by credit or debit card, or by using the company’s mobile app.

According to its news release, Macerich started installing EV chargers at its properties in 2016 and now has over 330 stations. The expansion plan will involve 12 properties in six states.

“Macerich’s collaboration with Electrify America helps us amplify our commitment to reduce climate impacts in our communities as part of our goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2030,” Macerich Vice President of Sustainability Jeff Bedell said in the release. “It’s our hope that these publicly available stations will elevate awareness of sustainable transportation and energize more drivers to make the switch.”
