Following the May 2020 launch of the Marengo Charging Plaza, one of the largest public fast-charging stations in the nation, a new Arroyo Parkway Charging Depot will be located on the southwest corner of East Glenarm Street and the beginning of the 110 Freeway in Pasadena.

The Arroyo Charging Plaza will include fast-charging stations owned by the City and by Tesla, bringing approximately 26 additional chargers to the area.
The engineering firm, Stantec, will assist with the design of the DC Fast Chargers, which serve all EV types. “Fast” chargers are high-power EV chargers that minimize charging time, getting drivers back on the road with at least an 80% charge in approximately 30 minutes or less. Stantec’s design team will be responsible for engineering the power switch gear, associated structural engineering, and permitting.
The new Arroyo Parkway Charging Depot is one of several EV charging infrastructure projects Stantec is delivering in support of California’s goal to decrease emissions and increase clean air using EVs. In Northern California, the firm is supporting the California Department of General Services in developing a series of charging infrastructure projects. The projects involve site assessments at state-owned properties—including prisons, remote Department of Fish and Wildlife locations, hospitals, and parking garages—and detailed infrastructure design.
PWP Assistant General Manager of Electric Delivery, Marvin Moon, said:
The Arroyo Parkway Charging Depot is another way Pasadena Water and Power supports our electric vehicle customers with clean transportation infrastructure. We are grateful for the support of our project partners Stantec, Greenlots and Tesla to help make this public charging facility a reality.
“We’re excited to continue working with Pasadena Water and Power to expand charging options for electric vehicle owners in Southern California,” said . “It’s critical to continue to grow the EV infrastructure, especially in California—a leader in sustainability and clean air practices.”
