DC fast chargers in California’s Central Valley are a crucial link in the West Coast Electric Highway

Three Love’s Travel Stops along State Highway 99 in California’s Central Valley plan to install public charging stations as part of the West Coast Electric Highway initiative funded by the California Energy Commission.

Each of the three new charging sites, located in Ripon, Madera and Tulare, will feature four individual charging posts, including both Level 2 chargers and DC fast chargers, with charging rates of 50 or 150 kW.

EV Connect will operate the charging stations, using its EV Cloud open-standards-based software platform. Love’s alternative fueling arm, Trillium, will build the sites and provide ongoing management.

“We can now provide electric vehicle drivers the same safe and well-maintained travel stop services that we’ve provided to professional truck drivers and everyday motorists since 1964,” said Frank Love, co-CEO of Love’s.
