Shorepower Technologies has added its services, which lets drivers plug in to grid power instead of idling, to three truckstops: Sapp Bros Travel Center, at Exit 440 on Interstate 80 in Omaha, Neb.; Broadway Flying J, at Exit 144 on Interstate 35 in Williams, Iowa; and Shoemaker’s Shell Travel Center, at Exit 395 on I-80 in Lincoln, Neb.
The three sites join more than a dozen locations with these services already in operation through the federally funded Shorepower Truck Electrification Project. Implemented by Shorepower Technologies and Cascade Sierra Solutions, 50 truck stops will add plug-in power pedestals this year, according to the company.
Shoemaker’s has added 36 truck parking spaces with electrical connections, while Sapp Bros and Broadway Flying J have each added 24.
