Dedicated EV charging corridor planned for I-15 truckers

Truckers traveling between Los Angeles and Las Vegas will soon have access to a dedicated electric charging corridor, as announced by Greenlane Infrastructure on March 27, 2024.

Key details: This ambitious project, supported by Daimler Trucks North America, is set to line I-15 with more than 100 chargers and amenities to ease the transition to zero-emission vehicles.

  • The corridor will kick off with stations in Colton, Barstow, and Baker, California, expected to expand within the next year.
  • By late 2024, the Colton site aims to feature 60 chargers, including 400 kW DCFCs for medium- and heavy-duty electric trucks.

Each site is designed to streamline rest stops with pull-through lanes, facilities, and food options while also preparing for passenger EV charging and future hydrogen refueling.

Looking ahead: Greenlane hopes their project will serve as a benchmark for future EV charging infrastructure.
