Full-service electric vehicle (EV) charging centre developer Rove is to start construction of the first six of a network of 20 centres across California.

Work on the first six locations, in southern California, will start this year. The first centres will be in Corona, Santa Ana, Costa Mesa, Long Beach, Torrance and La Mirada.

Rove plans to open a total of 20 locations by 2026.

Each Rove centre will host 40 ultra-fast, direct-current fast chargers (DCFC), capable of reaching speeds up to 350 kW – making a full charge possible in as little as 15 minutes.

Centres will feature a market with all-natural and organic meals and grocery options, car wash, restrooms, free Wi-Fi, lounge, and patio.

They will also integrate onsite solar panels and battery storage to supplement the use of electricity from the grid during peak times and support more sustainable energy use.

Rove has financial backing from Newlight Partners, a private investment firm.
