During a visit to TEC Equipment in Fontana, California, U.S. Energy Secretary Granholm and U.S. Representative Pete Aguilar (CA-31) experienced first-hand the Volvo VNR Electric,  a battery-electric, zero-tailpipe-emissions transport solution ideally suited for regional haul, drayage, pickup, and local delivery. They learned about the valuable outcomes from the Volvo LIGHTS project, an innovative three-year project that brought together 14 public and private partners, including Volvo Group, Volvo Trucks, and TEC Equipment to design and implement a blueprint for the robust ecosystem necessary to deploy battery-electric trucks and equipment at scale.  For more information on the Volvo VNR Electric, please visit a local Volvo Trucks dealership or www.volvotrucks.us.com
