About Truck Stop Electrification

Electrified parking spaces (EPS), also known as truck stop electrification (TSE), provide truck drivers the necessary services, such as heating, air conditioning, or appliances, without requiring them to idle their engine.

The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) estimates there are about 5,000 truck stops in the United States. Options for truck stop electrification include single-system electrification and dual-system electrification, also known as "shorepower."
