Multi-Million Dollar Order Significantly Expands E-Bloc Backlog; Will Support Its Full-Service, Ultra High-Speed Charging Locations in California
Fort Lee, NJ, August 7, 2023 / PRNewswire / — Pioneer Power Solutions, Inc.

Pioneer Power’s innovative E-Bloc will help Rove develop one of its first full-service EV charging centers, which will include 40 direct-current ultra-fast chargers (“DCFC”), capable of reaching speeds up to 350 kW – making a full charge possible in as little as 15 minutes.

Rove’s centers will include onsite amenities like a fresh market, lounge, free Wi-Fi, and car wash. Future Rove centers will be located in Santa Ana, Corona, and Torrance, with plans to open 20 by 2026.
“Rove is a true innovator, creating a state-of-the-art, re-imagined EV charging experience that utilizes renewable energy and creates a compelling consumer experience,” commented Nathan Mazurek, Pioneer Power’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We believe that Rove’s customer-centric centers will make EV charging not just safe, quick, and reliable but also convenient. We are proud to support this important initiative and believe that our highly flexible E-Bloc solution will help Rove to harness solar and other renewable energy sources and optimize environmental benefits. Rove has an aggressive growth strategy, and we hope to grow with them on this important journey.”
