PRIORITY #4
Electric Truck for Better Air

Goal: By 2030, have charging infrastructure depots and education/awareness & community engagement campaigns to achieve 30% electrified drayage trucks coming in and out of San Leandro.

 

One of the reasons this project scored the lowest was not for lack of support but for lack of clarity around how the technology would work, necessitating a need for continued community engagement once Forum Mobility develops its electric truck charging depot.

  1. Need for clarity on how independent truck owners benefit and can take advantage of an electric truck and charging in San Leandro.

  2. Desire to see the integration of solar and battery storage to ensure clean energy and avoid further exacerbating demands on the grid during brown and blackouts.

  3. Desire to see options for truck drivers to do something other than sit in their truck while charging (is there a cafe, gym, or nearby community center they can use while waiting?), as well as greening like trees within the charging depot itself.

  4. Desire to understand whether trucks waiting to charge at the depot will cause traffic spillover in the surrounding neighborhood.
