Project Title & Description
Chelsea/Shapiro Produce TRU Repower/Idle Reduction Project
This project will improve air quality in the New England region by reducing emissions from in-use diesel engines. Funding from the Diesel Emissions Reduction Program (DERA) is for Chelsea Collaborative Inc. which has partnered with Don Shapiro Produce, Inc. The objective of the grant is to reduce diesel emissions through the replacement of 11 diesel powered truck refrigeration units (TRUs) with new electrically driven TRUs, the associated engine-driven electric generators, and battery energy storage systems to power the TRUs. This grant will also fund truck bay electrification to reduce idling.
