Houston sees start of zero emission delivery vehicle project


The Houston-Galveston Area Council (H-GAC) in Texas (USA) has joined up with the Center for Transportation and the Environment and Smith Electric Vehicles Corp to reduce vehicle emissions from delivery trucks in the Houston-Galveston region. As part of a US Department of Energy sponsored effort, existing diesel delivery vehicles will be replaced with all-electric medium- and heavy-duty Smith Newton trucks for daily operations in that area. By deploying 30 zero emission trucks, H-GAC expects to reduce petroleum consumption by over 250,000 gallons of diesel fuel over the two year demonstration period. (ben)
