Gage Zero deploys new ZEV charging depot in California

The Fontana, CA, hub will feature high-speed chargers to accommodate the charging needs of Class 8 trucks and other vehicles.

Gage Zero, an Austin-based fleet electrification solutions company that deploys, owns and operates charging infrastructure, deployed its new zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) charging depot for heavy-duty trucks in Fontana, California. The Fontana hub will feature high-speed chargers to accommodate the charging needs of Class 8 trucks and other vehicles, the company said.

Gage Zero said it developed a multi-fleet charging hub model that allows fleets of varying vehicle types to use the same site to charge their electric trucks. Gage Zero provides the upfront capital to develop, own, and operate the hubs, allowing fleets to sign up as customers and have access to managed charging without distracting from their daily operations. Earlier this month, Gage Zero announced plans to develop a fleet charging depot in AllianceTexas, a development north of Fort Worth, Texas.

“We know California is leading the way for fleet electrification because of its policies, but we also understand the strain this puts on fleet owners and operators in the state,” Zeina El-Azzi, Gage Zero founder and CEO, said. “Our goal is to create conveniently located, reliable charging sites that make it easier and more affordable for fleets to electrify, whether they are in a state mandating the transition or not.”

Kam-Way Transportation, a freight broker and asset-based truckload provider operates a freight business in multiple hubs on the West Coast, including Fontana, and will use the Gage Zero Fontana hub to charge its fleet customers’ electric trucks. Kam-Way is beginning its transition to electric to meet its own sustainability goals, customer ESG requirements and regulatory mandates in California such as the Advanced Clean Fleet (ACF) rule introduced by the California Air & Resources Board (CARB).

Gage Zero said it will develop, own and operate the Fontana site, removing the need for fleets to assemble a large amount of capital and expertise to build out and operate their charging infrastructure.
