The California Air Resources Board (CARB) is imposing zero-emission requirements on TRUs sold or operated in California by December 31, 2029.  PLM can help you meet this deadline, but leasing now.  Our zero emission refrigerated trailers use a high-efficiency refrigeration system powered by roof-mounted solar photovoltaic panels, a wheel-momentum generator, lithium-ion batteries, and a unique auxiliary power unit to eliminate the requirement for diesel fuel to power the refrigeration system and are available now.
