Arizona to add shorepower

Jill Dunn | August 24, 2010

Two Interstate 10 truck stops in Arizona plan to offer electrification for up to 100 trucks by mid-October.

Arizona Department of Environmental Quality officials said a minimum of 60 units will be installed at the Gas City truck stop, State Highway 90 and I-10, in Benson. Thirty more units will be installed at Sun Mart truck stop, at Exit 378 on I-10, in San Simon.

The spaces will include cooling and heating units. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency awarded $1.7 million from American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funding to Shorepower Technologies to install up to 100 parking spaces.

Payment for the electricity will be made at on-site kiosks, which will accept credit cards.
