Macerich, one of the nation's leading owners, operators, and developers of major regional town centers in top markets, is adding public, ultra-fast electric vehicle (EV) charging stations at 12 properties in six states through its ongoing collaboration with Electrify America.
Macerich began installing EV charging stations in 2016 to advance dynamic, resilient regional town centers with the least environmental impact. The company now counts over 330 charging stations across its portfolio of high-profile retail and mixed-use properties.
“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,” says Macerich Vice President of Sustainability Jeff Bedell. “It’s our hope that these publicly available stations will elevate awareness of sustainable transportation and energize more drivers to make the switch.”
EV drivers visiting a Macerich station can pay by credit or debit card, or by using the Electrify America mobile app, which allows drivers to easily locate a station, initiate a charge and check charging session progress from their phones for a seamless experience from start to finish.
“To help electric vehicle drivers maximize their charging options while on the road, it’s important to have accessible stations where drivers want to be, near amenities like Macerich centers,” says Anthony Lambkin, senior director of operations at Electrify America. “By offering convenient ultra-fast charging stations where people are already gathering, we are meeting customers’ needs and helping build confidence in the electric future.”
EV charging stations at 12 Macerich properties include:
New Jersey: Freehold Raceway Mall (Freehold)
