by Oct 14, 2020

Ocala will be introducing electric garbage trucks in Florida. The city plans to swap out five of its diesel operated trucks for battery powered ones. The trucks are manufactured by BYD, a Chinese company. Cost of a single piece of truck is $525,000. These electric trucks will cost much more than their diesel counterparts. A grant from United States Environmental Protection Agency will be used to buy these electric trucks. Link to the news: https://www.wmfe.org/ocala-adding-electric-garbage-trucks-to-its-fleet/166592
