Four more truck stops get electrification

Plug-in-power stations have been installed at four truck stops: Southern Pride Truck Plaza at Exit 16 on I-24 at Paducah, Ky.; Big Easy Travel Plaza at Exit 239 on I-10 in New Orleans.; The Tennessean Truck Stop at Exit 22 on I-65 in Cornersville, Tenn.; The I-40 Travel Center at Exit 35 on I-40 in Ozark, Ark. Each site has 24 truck parking spaces at which drivers can plug their vehicles into electrical connections.

Plug-in pedestals provide access to 120 VAC, 208 VAC or 240 VAC power sources, at a rate of $1 per hour, with cable TV available at some locations and wireless Internet for an additional charge. Half of the sites will also offer 480 VAC power for refrigerated trailer units with electric standby capabilities.

The truck stops are the latest among 50 along major freight corridors receiving plug-in-power installations through the federally funded Shorepower Truck Electrification Project, administered jointly by Shorepower Technologies and Cascade Sierra Solutions. For more information, visit
