    Anti-smog agencies offer $20 million for Inland warehouses to dump diesel trucks

    Warehouses and massive distribution centers built in the Inland Empire are a double-edged sword: They bring economic development and jobs along with diesel trucks that contribute to lung-damaging air pollution.

    Two anti-smog agencies on Friday, Nov. 6, unleashed incentives totaling $20 million to entice existing warehouses, from Amazon to Walmart to smaller operators, to swap out diesel-burning delivery trucks and off-road cargo-movement equipment with zero-emission or near-zero emission vehicles.

    Will help the environment and save truckers money. Such a huge market and opportunity - everyone wins except ICE.

    That is not alot of money. Do these places have areas large enough to build mega chargers that could support charging 5 to 10 trucks at a time

    Bull**** article. Modern trucks do not emit smog, in fact no trucks that are legal on California roads emit smog.

    I work in the industry, and 10 years ago we had trucks that would emit so much that if left running in the shop it would be damn near impossible to breath inside in about 30 minutes. Now we can idle all 10 bays and the shop will have less pollution inside than the 1 pre emissions truck.

    Tesla trucks seem like a great thing for short haul, no need for BS.
