California Pilot adds Shorepower

Updated May 18, 2012

Pilot Flying J, in collaboration with federally funded Shorepower Truck Electrification Project, has added electrical connections to 36 parking spaces at the Pilot Travel Center at Exit 745 off I-5 in Weed, California. The connections give drivers the ability to run heating, air conditioning and cab appliances without idling during 10-hour rest periods.  The Weed location will also feature nine 460v plug-in connections for electric reefer units.
