Shorepower – Plug In and Save

Transport News Network – October 2009

Brian Weatherley blogs on Transport News Network about the Big Boy’s Shorepower installation in a recent piece titled “Gentlemen, Stop Your Engines.”

“A truck driver simply pulls in and attaches an all-weather electrical cord between the pedestal and his truck.  Electricity is then available for use inside the cab.The effort aims to dramatically cut down on truck engine idling by making it easier to use electric power when parked at truck stops. And since the price of diesel neared $5 a gallon in 2008 shore power has gained a higher profile in the trucking industry above and beyond the green dividend.”
