On Tuesday, June 18, the Port of New Orleans (Port NOLA) expanded their electric vehicle fleet with the help of the Clean Fuel Transition Fund for Public Fleets, which is managed by the Regional Planning Commission’s (RPC) Clean Fuel Partnership program…In this case, the funding provided by the program was used to offset the cost of adding two plug-in hybrid electric Ford F-150s equipped with regenerative braking and a high voltage lithium battery along with other extended range technology. These systems, developed by XL – a company dedicated to proving fleet electrification solutions – help to reduce the vehicle’s miles per gallon by as much as 50 percent and decrease the vehicle’s emissions by as much as a 33 percent.
