Industry-First Electric Service Trucks Come to Woodland

Two all-electric service trucks are now on the streets of Woodland with the City’s Public Works Department. The EVs replaced two older, gas-powered work trucks used by water and sewer crews. The City is proud that these all-electric, medium-duty commercial service trucks are among the first of their kind to be built and used in the United States.


Furthering the goals of the City's Climate Action Plan, these two electric trucks will save more than 180 metric tons of carbon dioxide over their lifetime, equivalent to the annual greenhouse gas emissions from 38 passenger vehicles. In addition, the trucks will be housed at the City’s Municipal Service Center, a facility that offsets most of its energy use with on-site solar production and purchases the rest through Valley Clean Energy.


“The City of Woodland employs the best available technology to increase efficiency. These fully electric service trucks are the latest example of the City’s commitment to sustainability and epitomize the cooperative efforts of a number of City departments,” says Public Works Director Craig Locke. 


To purchase the trucks, the City supplemented vehicle replacement funds with a Sacramento Emergency Clean Air & Transportation grant and a California Air Resources Board incentive. With help from PG&E’s EV Fleet program, Public Works also installed two dual-cord fast-charging stations that can charge the trucks in about four hours if the batteries are completely drained.
