CCFC Presents at Green Truck Summit
Earlier this month CCFC Co-Coordinator Sean Flaherty attended the Green Truck Summit in Indianapolis, the site of many exciting announcements. During the conference, Roush CleanTech unveiled the new propane vehicle for FedEx Ground, a Ford F-59 strip chassis truck that will be operated by contractor Chase Delivery on a high mileage route in Buffalo.
eNow, a vendor of 100-watt eCharge brand solar chargers for trucks based in Rhode Island, announced a new partnership with Palfinger Liftgates. The eNow charger is now an optional feature on all of Palfinger's liftgate systems.
"Liftgate batteries are notorious for running out of charge, curtailing delivery cycles or leaving drivers stranded without liftgate capacity," eNow says. "The eCharge system ensures that liftgate batteries are topped off and ready to go."
While at the Summit, Sean presented information about the Carolina Blue Skies & Green Jobs Initiative at the DOE Clean Cities Poster Session.
