Greenlane is planning to develop its first commercial electric vehicle charging corridor along Interstate 15 in Southern California, the industry joint venture announced March 27.

Daimler Truck North America, NextEra Energy Resources and BlackRock started the joint venture to develop a nationwide network of commercial charging locations. Its first charging corridor will run along I-15, with its initial charging sites located in Colton, Barstow and Baker. The eventual plan is to have it stretch 280 miles from southern Nevada to Los Angeles.

“After considering various factors, such as truck telematics data, frequent freight routes and customer deployment strategy, the Greenlane team selected these three optimal locations for our first commercial charging corridor to accelerate the transition to zero emissions,” Greenlane CEO Patrick Macdonald-King said. “The launch of this corridor not only marks a critical step in addressing the urgent need for publicly available, nationwide electric charging for commercial vehicles but will also serve as a model for the EV charging hubs of the future.”

Greenlane plans to announce additional locations over the next year. Colton is set to be the flagship site, with the aim being to open it in late 2024. Plans call for it to have more than 60 chargers, including 400 kilowatt direct current fast chargers to speed up charging of medium- and heavy-duty zero-emission vehicles. It also will have 200 kW DCFC options and passenger car charging stalls.
