Shorepower – Plug In and Save

Today’s Trucking – June 2008 – Clean Power

Today’s Trucking magazine featured an article titled “Clean Power for a buck an hour.” Jeff Kim is quoted:
“Each Shorepower connection comes in at a quarter of the cost of an ‘off board’ TSE [Truck Stop Electrification] parking space,” says the company’s chief operating officer Jeff Kim. “But that does not tell the whole story. Generally, our competitors [IdleAire] require a 75- to 100-parking-space minimum. We can do facilities with fewer than 25 parking spaces under certain circumstances. A small Shorepower facility can cost as little as $100,000 depending on site-specific issues, whereas an ‘off-board’ TSE facility can cost $1 million or more.”
