Portland and Daimler team up for 5MW electric semi public charging ‘Island’

Portland General Electric (NYSE: POR) and Daimler Trucks North  America (DTNA) today announced that they are co-developing a large  public charging site for medium- and heavy-duty electric trucks. Known  as “Electric Island,” it is expected to be the first of its kind in the  US.

Electric Island is under construction now near DTNA’s headquarters on  Swan Island in Portland, Oregon. It will support up to nine charging  stations with charging levels of up to greater than 1 megawatt — more  than four times faster than today’s fastest light-duty vehicle chargers —  by spring 2021. Lighter vehicles can also use the charging station.
