Motiv Power Systems delivers five electric step vans to Shasta Linen Supply

Shasta said it has already driven 9,600 miles and reduced an estimated 15,800 pounds of tailpipe emissions and saved $4,800 on fuel costs.

Motiv Power Systems completed the deployment of five electric delivery vehicles to Shasta Linen Supply, a commercial linen supply company delivering linens, uniforms and other textiles to over 1,200 business and professional firms in California. California-based companies are beginning to transition to electric in accordance with the state’s Advanced Clean Fleet (ACF) regulation, which requires fleets to have 50% of their vehicles be all-electric by 2031, and Shasta’s five Motiv trucks now make up half of their fleet.

With the delivery and deployment of the Motiv-powered vehicles in late 2023, Shasta said it has already driven 9,600 miles and reduced an estimated 15,800 pounds of tailpipe emissions and saved $4,800 on fuel costs. The fourth-generation, woman-owned linen supply company was recently awarded “Clean Power City: Carbon Free Transportation” at Sacramento Municipal Utility District’s 16th Annual Sustainable Business Awards for its use of Motiv’s electric trucks.

“Community and sustainability go hand-in-hand for the team here at Shasta — and electrifying our fleet with the Motiv vehicles brings us one step closer to cultivating a cleaner and greener environment,” Noël Hammer Richardson, president and CEO of Shasta Linen Supply, said. “With funding and incentives available to help us go electric, we’ve experienced that Motiv’s electric trucks are quieter, cheaper to maintain and easier to operate than the gasoline trucks they replace. From a business perspective, it’s the best thing to do.”
