Shorepower – Plug In and Save

Fleet Maintenance Magazine – August 2011

Fleet Maintenance magazine writes about Shorepower’s current and long term plan for Truck Stop Electrification. The magazine is written for supervisory personnel who repair and maintain fleets and reaches a total circulation of more than 61,750. Subscribers are from For Hire, Private, Government, Utility and Bus fleets.

“Getting the first installation of Truck Stop Electrification (TSE) under STEP, a U.S. Department of Energy program, at a truck stop in Baker City, Ore., is a big step, but it’s just a first step. Beyond Baker City, Shorepower Technologies, which along with Cascade Sierra Solutions is now administering the STEP program, is planning 49 more truck stops to outfit with power pedestals.

Nor will that be the end of the journey. TSE will really make its mark, says Alan Bates, Shorepower Technologies’ Vice President of Marketing, when truckers can count on having the service available wherever they pull in for the night.

For that reason Shorepower’s goal is to build a network of TSE-equipped truck stops along the nation’s major highway-freight corridors.”
