Shorepower – Plug In and Save

The Herald (North Carolina) – November 2009

The Herald (North Carolina) reports on the grand opening of Shorepower at Big Boys Truck Stop – the thnc-heraldird truck stop in the state to offer an overnight plug-in option.

“The family-owned truck stop, which has more than 200 parking spaces, now has 24 outlets for truckers and charges $1 per hour for their use.

Solar Center equates to planting a tree.”
