Port of Hueneme first West Coast port to offer plug-in capable wharfs

Being the recipient of federal, state, regional, and local grants has been instrumental in allowing the port to reduce carbon emissions within the port and in the surrounding communities.

Brian MacDonald, VCTC vice chair and Mayor Pro Tem for the City of Oxnard, said in a statement announcing the grant award, that he is proud that VCTC was able to award a $10.4 million grant to the Port of Hueneme.

“This is huge for this area of Oxnard and Port Hueneme, because when these ships come into port and are sitting at the berth, if they don’t have a power source, they run their onboard powerplants. Now, they can come it, shut down their machinery, plug in, and be fully self-sufficient.”
