The TRUth about Electric TRUs: How Electric TRUs can Improve Operations and Save Money
Tuesday, May 12, 2020
Join the California Trucking Association, Executive Circle Club Partner Southern California Edison, and American Trucking Associations for a complimentary webinar as we take a deep dive into the who, what, how and why of electric TRUs and what they can do for your business.
The State of California continues to pursue significant emissions reductions from TRUs and require the state’s electric utilities to fund infrastructure to support these efforts. This webinar will provide fleets and facility operators with the information they need to prepare for these upcoming efforts as well as what impact the COVID-19 pandemic may have on these efforts. This concise training will also provide you and your team an overview of funding opportunities for vehicles, infrastructure, and fuel cost comparison.
Tune in on May 12 and ensure your business is not caught off guard by regulations coming down the pike and find out if electric TRUs are the right fit for your business.
