The Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) has received a $2 million American Recovery and Reinvestment Act grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to establish truck stop electrification (TSE) technology at truck stops along Tennessee interstate corridors. This technology provides cooled or heated air to truck sleeping berths and allows truck drivers to turn their engines off, save fuel and money, and reduce air emissions while staying comfortable in the truck cab. TDOT is soliciting competitive grant applications from truck stops to purchase and install TSE technology at selected locations along interstate highways. Additional grant information is available below.
