The California Air Resources Board is investing $44.8 million in Inland Southern California to reduce emissions from goods movement trucks and equipment. The project, Volvo LIGHTS, is a unique collaboration between the South Coast Air Quality Management District, Volvo Trucks and 14 other organizations to pioneer a range of vehicle, charging and workforce development innovations critical for the commercial success of battery electric trucks and equipment. Over a three-year period, Volvo LIGHTS will demonstrate the ability for heavy-duty, battery electric trucks and equipment to reliable move freight between the city’s two major ports and warehouses throughout the region with less noise and zero emissions (Volvo LIGHTS, 2019).
