Electrifying Terminal Trucks to Optimize Freight

Metropolitan Energy Center (MEC) recently launched the project “Electrifying Terminal Trucks to Optimize Freight Yards“. As part of this project, an Orange EV all-electric demo truck will be available for use at interested fleet sites across the U.S. at no cost except a shipping fee of $500.

The vehicles funded under this grant are designed and built by Orange EV.

Project Subrecipients:

  • Lazer Spot is the leading provider of yard management in North America, working at 400+ sites in the USA and Canada for manufacturers and retailers. Through the project, they deployed two trucks at a manufacturing facility and distribution center in the Chicago metro area.
  • Hirschbach Motor Lines, a private long-haul carrier specializing in refrigerated and other specialty cargoes, deployed their truck at a client site in Wyandotte County, KS.
  • Johnson County deployed their truck at the Tomahawk Creek Wastewater Treatment Facility in Leawood, KS. The facility is currently under construction in a multi-year expansion project.
