Devine, in conjunction with TransPower (manufacturer of heavy-duty electric vehicles) and the California Energy Commission (CEC), will deploy two electric yard goats in the Sacramento area. We expect the equipment to bedelivered next Spring. It seems like a long way out, but these are complicated pieces of machinery. They do not just roll off the assembly line.
We are excited to be awarded this opportunity and look forward to being a part of the pilot program.
For those that do not know what a yard goat is, it is a specialized truck for the movement of containers/trailers between drop lots and dock doors.
