Peterbilt delivered two zero-emission Model 520EVs to the Municipality of Anchorage Department of Solid Waste Services (SWS) in Anchorage, Alaska, during a ribbon-cutting celebration of its latest warm storage facility for critical equipment.

The Model 520EV is designed for commercial and residential applications and Peterbilt said the trucks provide the Municipality of Anchorage and SWS with a quiet and environmentally friendly vehicle that supports the Municipality’s goal to eliminate 80% of greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

SWS is at the forefront of sustainable and integrated electric vehicles, according to Peterbilt. In 2021, Peterbilt delivered the first production Model 220EV into the SWS fleet.

“With like-for-like chassis, we will evaluate and analyze its performance with internal combustion engines and investigate the EV’s performance in the northern climate region. We look forward to providing the Department of Energy comprehensive feedback on the heavy-duty EV fleets to share our knowledge with the rest of the United States for their benefit,” said Kelli Toth, acting director, Municipality of Anchorage SWS.

Jake Montero, Peterbilt assistant general manager, sales and marketing, said Peterbilt offers the industry’s broadest range of electric vehicles designed to work in a variety of climates. Peterbilt also has a dedicated team available to help identify the best EV configuration for customer operations, locate available incentives, and help choose from the wide selection of Paccar chargers and infrastructure solutions.
