Shorepower – Plug In and Save

The Climate Trust – October 2009

The Climate Trust features a case-study about their contract with Shorepower Technologies to purchase offsets from climate-trustTruck Stop Electrification projects. The Climate Trust  is an Oregon organization whose mission is to promote climate change solutions by providing high-quality carbon offset projects and advancing sound offset policy.

With The Climate Trust’s funding, Shorepower Technologies was able to overcome financial barriers that exist implementing a new technology. Also, the use of carbon offset funding helps keep the cost to truckers down, helping to overcome industry barriers to a new technology.
