Mexican standards for connections may be an additional area of interest given the large number of trucks that may pass through our southern borders. (9) The location of oilfields in the remote arctic requires operation of diesel trucks on a 24-hour basis during cold ambient conditions, which is a large part of the year. In addition, the North Slope oilfields do not have enough power generation capacity to support the TSE initiative envisioned by EPA and the U.S. Department of Transportation. We request that EPA clarify in future rule-making that the TSE initiative is not meant to apply to industrial applications such as ours, particularly in arctic conditions on the North Slope of Alaska. (2) We would like to express our support for the effort to develop uniform national standards for truck stop electrification (TSE) infrastructure. As the number of manufacturers and users of TSE technology grows, the lack of uniform standards could lead to stranded investments, damage to TSE equipment and, worst of all, safety hazards.
