AeroVironment (AVAV) is announcing today that Balqon Corp (OTC:BLQN) has purchased its PosiCharge fast charge system for its fleet of heavy duty electric trucks used at the Port of Los Angeles for moving ship containers.  The PosiCharge fast charge system developed for heavy duty electric yard tractors can charge up to 4 heavy duty Balqon trucks at a time, which allows the port to increase the use of electric vehicles ultimately reducing emissions.  The PosiCharge system serves 8 of the top auto manufacturers, 7 of the largest food and beverage companies, 90% of leading airlines and 15 of Fortune’s top 100 companies.

“Studies show that sea ports are significant contributors of emissions and carbon into the atmosphere,” said Mike Bissonette, senior vice president and general manager, AV Efficient Energy Systems. “The Port of L.A. is at the forefront of a movement to reduce these emissions. Our fast charge systems are used around the world and can help ports, like L.A., clean the air and reduce operating costs. It’s a winning combination for all.”
