Daimler Trucks North America and Portland General Electric unveil Electric Island, the first charging site designed for big trucks.
The station will be open to public for all levels of EV charging.
The station is located across the street from DTNA headquarters, less than one mile from I-5. It will be open to public for all levels of EV charging.
There are eight high-power chargers in total (up to 350 kW), supplied by various manufacturers. The majority of chargers are available for public use.
Electric Island will offer a proper charging solution for big electric vehicles. It will also help accelerate the development, testing and deployment of electric commercial vehicles like semi-trucks or buses.
“The site is built to immediately provide charging for EVs of all shapes and sizes, and will serve as an innovation center, allowing both PGE and DTNA to study energy management, charger use and performance, and, in the case of DTNA, its own vehicles’ charging performance.”
The Electric Island is also future-proof – ready for installation of “planned 1+ megawatt chargers, when they are released.”
Those 1 MW or higher charging power will be a game-changing solution for electric trucks because they will significantly lower the charging time of big battery packs (500-1,000 kWh or more).
Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) has recently opened the order books for its first two electric truck models, the Freightliner eCascadia and Freightliner eM2.
