Electric vehicles charging ahead at Port of San Diego
August 19, 2019 —AJOT
California’s progressive zero-emission vehicles’ regulations, robust public funding and incentive ecosystem are jolting the Port of San Diego into action. The San Diego Port Tenants Association (SDPTA) is demonstrating 7 of 10 electric vehicles (EV) by Port Tenants: Dole Fresh Fruit, Marine Group Boat Works and Pasha Automotive Services. Advanced technologies are expensive and full commercialization of operations are years away, therefore the California Energy Commission (CEC) granted $5.9 million as an incentive to the SDPTA members to prove the feasibility by this demonstration project.
