Simon is helping customers charge their electric vehicles faster than ever before. It has installed an ultra-fast electric vehicle charging system at its San Francisco Premium Outlets.

Simon has installed an ultra-fast electric vehicle charging system at its San Francisco Premium Outlets, in Livermore, Calif. It is California’s first location for EV systems featuring super-fast recharging speeds up to 350 kilowatts (kW) from Electrify America. As part of its ongoing sustainability strategy, Simon teamed with Electrify America to open 10 DC fast chargers at San Francisco Premium Outlets for public use.

The charging site features eight 150 kW chargers and two 350 kW chargers. The 350 kW chargers are capable of recharging an electric vehicle at 20 miles a minute providing 200 miles of vehicle driving range in just 10 minutes.

“We are delighted to be the first location in California to offer EV owners the fastest charging option available in the U.S.,” said Jamal Porter, West Regional VP of management for Premium Outlets. “Our customers expect a premium experience and these fast chargers offer the latest technology to provide a convenient, reliable and quick recharging experience.”

The 10 Electrify America chargers are co-located with 20 Tesla Superchargers making San Francisco Premium Outlets one of the nation’s largest multi-standard fast charging sites.

In addition to San Francisco Premium Outlets, Electrify America will install charging systems at Simon locations nationwide including 17 centers in California, with 95 additional chargers.
