21st Century Truck Stop
December 22nd, 2020
WattEV’s 21st Century Truck Stop brings the nation’s first dedicated zero emission truck stop to a significantly disadvantaged community and major trade corridor in Bakersfield, California.
This project is transformative, designed for scale, and is developed in cooperation with leading vehicle manufacturers to ensure the needs of medium- and heavy-duty electric vehicles (MHDEV) are met.
The project incorporates distributed energy resources (DER) at a site that will be used for both an initial fleet of battery electric trucks as well as a larger public access fleet, providing an ongoing resource for small and large fleets that are electrifying throughout the Central Valley.
With an initial set of twelve high power battery electric chargers, this site combines a 110-acre solar photovoltaic (PV) farm with battery storage.
This site will also incorporate load management and managed charging from Greenlots, which provides availability, reliability, and cost-effectiveness of high-power charging.
