Reducing FDNY ambulance idling ($360,000) – The Fire Department of the City of New York (FDNY) averages 625 ambulance trips per day, strategically dispersed throughout the five boroughs of New York City to minimize response time. However, those ambulances can idle 12 hours a day, wasting fuel. Shorepower Technologies, Utica, a national leader in truck stop electrification, is working with Eldor Electric LLC, College Point, and the FDNY on a pilot project to design, install and evaluate street-side electric connections to replace wasteful idling.
