Reading, Pennsylvania is headquartered Penske Truck Leasing and Los Angeles with headquarters Shell Recharge Solutions for North America today announced a new joint initiative to charge light electric vehicles.
Level 2 electric truck charging stations will initially be deployed in Pensk, California. Additional sites will be deployed in other US states in 2022 and beyond.
Shell Recharge solutions will be presented on twenty-three Penske Truck Leasing sites in California. Three will also be installed in Washington State; two each in Colorado, Illinois and Oregon; and one in Reading, Pennsylvania. This will lead to a network of Penske Shell L2 79 chargers.
Shell Recharge Solutions will support network design, installation and charging using its SKY software platform, which allows customers to manage their own network of smart charging stations for EVs on a scale. Shell will also provide support for the maintenance of Penske L2 charging stations.
The North American charger model, the AXLU111, has an additional wired / wireless connection for the central control system and supports airborne technology. Its display comes as a standard LED lamp or as an optional 5-inch LCD display.
April 20 Electric crackle reported that Penske Truck Leasing had ordered 750 Ford E-Transit electric freight vans and was due to receive delivery of the first of these EVs in a matter of weeks, so naturally this order, which is headed to Southern California, will require charging infrastructure.
Art Valley, president of Penske Truck Leasing, said:
We continue to invest in the development of our electric fleet and charging infrastructure to provide more opportunities for customers looking for sustainable solutions for the fleet.
