ChargePoint Opens Up All of California to Electric Travel with New Interregional DC Fast Charge Locations

ChargePoint announced it is building 70 new DC fast charge locations along popular highway routes across the state of California. California Energy Commission (CEC) grants provide primary project funding, augmented by ChargePoint and partners. All of the new stations will be part of the growing ChargePoint network of over 31,000 charging spots that are easy for EV drivers to find and use wherever they go. The new charging sites will enable extended-range electric travel throughout the state’s major transit corridors. EV drivers will gain access to destinations such as Las Vegas and Joshua Tree in Southern California and Lake Tahoe and Yosemite in Northern California, and they will be able to travel to the Oregon border on Highway 101 or Interstate 5. Dozens of under-served communities without previous access will get DC fast charge technology, compatible with all EVs that support fast charging. All drivers will be able to locate stations along their route using ChargePoint’s free mobile app. All 70 new charging locations will offer both DC fast and Level 2 charging to serve EV drivers whether they’re going on long trips or getting around town. Each site will initially include up to four 50-kilowatt DC fast charging stations. Station installation is expected to start in 2017 and be completed in late 2018, with all locations ready to add charging capacity as EV adoption continues to grow in the state. Sixteen sites on I-5 are currently in development and were funded for $3.74 million in early 2016, and the CEC funded an additional $9.27 million for the next 54 sites in December 2016. With these projects, the CEC is establishing a repeatable funding model for EV charging that will continue to bring EV charging to more areas and make driving electric easy for more people.
