TeraWatt breaks ground on Rancho Dominguez, CA heavy-duty EV charging site

TeraWatt Infrastructure announced the groundbreaking of its heavy duty electric vehicle (EV) charging site based in Rancho Dominguez, California. (Earlier post.)Located less than 15 miles north of the ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles, the site is strategically positioned to support sustainable trucking fleet operations in and out of the largest container ports in the United States.

Slated to be operational by mid-2024, TeraWatt’s Rancho Dominquez site will house a total of 20 pull-through and bobtail DC fast charging stalls and offer capacity of 7MW, enabling charging for up to 125 trucks per day and resulting in an annual decrease of 12,600 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions.

The site will also feature a driver amenities building, complete with a lounge, food and beverage services, and reliable Wi-Fi connectivity. At the groundbreaking event, a Volvo truck was provided to preview TeraWatt’s proprietary charging software and made available for test rides.

PepsiCo recently announced that it will be using the Rancho Dominquez site for last-mile delivery charging in the Los Angeles area, as the company ramps up fleet electrification efforts. This initiative underscores a growing commitment from the enterprise sector to adopt sustainable technologies across their logistics and transportation operations.

TeraWatt reinforces its commitment to decarbonizing fleet transportation by acquiring and building charging sites in areas that experience some of the most severe air pollution, in turn ushering in an era of green mobility and cleaner air quality. Recent reports have shown that South Los Angeles ranks second in the nation for worst places to live for air pollution.

The Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach stand as pivotal hubs for our nation’s strategic shipping operations, distinguished as some of the busiest and most critical ports in the country. We know that with the proper infrastructure in place, EV adoption will quickly accelerate in this region. We look forward to being at the forefront of this transition by providing the full-stack solutions that enable fleets to seamlessly electrify their operations for both the near and long-term.

—Neha Palmer, TeraWatt’s CEO and Co-Founder
