PineSpire at the CLFP Food Expo

by Angela Quiterio

Join PineSpire at the California League of Food Processors’ Expo in Sacramento February 15th & 16th

Email contact@pinespire.com for information on complimentary passes to the exhibit.

The California League of Food Processors (CLFP) is a leading advocate for the food processing industry both on a large and small scale. Every year, the CLFP hosts an expo for everyone in the industry, and what better place to have it than in America’s Farm- to- Fork Capital: Sacramento! This year’s event will be special since everyone will gather for the first time since the pandemic and special for us here at PineSpire as it is our first time attending.   

The CLFP Expo will consist of workshops to inform audiences about pressing issues in the industry in 2022, as well as a chance to network with potential partners and customers. Come see us at booth #637!   

One factor that can affect the processing industry in California is the Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) program put in place by the state to lower carbon emissions.  PineSpire is here to help you monetize LCFS credits for electric vehicles such as forklifts and pallet jacks.  We can generate revenue from existing electric equipment and help you with fleet electrification.

To learn more about electrification, earning LCFS and earning revenue, and get guidance on the latest zero emission forklift regulations, come see us at Booth 637 on the exhibitor floor on February 15th and 16th.

PineSpire Speaking on CFP at Food Northwest

by Angela Quiterio
Food NW Expo where PineSpire will speak on the Clean Fuels Program in Oregon
Please email contact@pinespire.com for complimentary passes to the event!

“Clean fuels programs”, “lower emissions”, and “electric vehicles” are all terms floating around, but those terms might not mean much to you yet.  A sure way to get informed is to attend the Food Northwest Tradeshow in Portland on February 3rd and 4th where PineSpire’s Ryan Huggins, an expert in the electrification industry, will be covering Oregon’s Clean Fuels Program (CFP) as well as answering your questions around it.

To get ready for the event, here’s an overview of what CFP is and how you can benefit while operating in Oregon:

What is CFP:  A clean fuels program instated by the state of Oregon in which those with electric vehicles get awarded for operating them and those who haven’t yet switched from propane to electric, are helped to do so. What’s the reward? A new revenue stream for your business.

Revenue Stream: CFP Credits are how the revenue you get back is measured. Every time you charge your electric fleet, credits are generated and at the end of every month or quarter, conventional fuel companies buy those credits from PineSpire and you get paid! Here at PineSpire, we give you two choices: either enroll and get paid based on market rates or a guaranteed rate, both are good choices; however, it all boils down to which one is best for you and your operations.

Eligible vehicles: The most common electric vehicles that are also eligible for the CFP program include: electric pallet jacks, electric forklifts, truck refrigeration units, cargo-handling equipment, and electric vehicle chargers. Vehicles powered by renewable fuels like biomethane and renewable hydrogen qualify as well

Beyond CFP: Although the CFP is a program for those who already have electric vehicles, PineSpire will also help you in the process of electrifying your fleet, which includes a comprehensive inventory, tailored review of your payback factors, and ongoing data and analytics to measure performance. Reach out to us and find out more about the Return on Investment for EVs and determining if this is the right choice for your operations.

Join us in Portland on February 3rd and 4th to learn more about EV Charging Revenue and how you can get enrolled in CFP today!
