Excerpt: “A Tennessee company intends to reduce diesel exhaust from trucks in central Pennsylvania. IdleAire Technologies of Knoxville will install equipment this week at 72 parking spaces for trucks in the Petro Travel Plaza along the Harrisburg Pike in Middlesex Twp.

Instead of running their truck engines and burning fuel, drivers can use IdleAire as an alternative power source for heating and air conditioning, television, Internet access and other comforts of home in their trucks.

Drivers pay a fee to use the system. IdleAire gives some of the money to the truck stop to offset reduced fuel sales, said David Everhart, chief operating officer at IdleAire.

IdleAire officials say truckers who use the system save at least one gallon of diesel fuel per hour.”
