El Dorado Hills EV charging stations to be part of Monterey-to-Lake Tahoe network

DriveTheArc broke ground Monday on a charging station for electric vehicles in El Dorado Hills.

The overall network, including the four-station facility at Raley’s at 3935 Park Drive, is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2017. The network will comprise 50 fast chargers at more than 20 sites.

The collaboration, which includes the state of California, U.S. and international businesses, is building a corridor of electric vehicle fast-charging stations from Monterey to Lake Tahoe.
