If you have a warehouse in Southern California, or your fleet delivers to these warehouses, PLM can advise you on how to meet WAIRE (Warehouse Actions and Investments to Reduce Emissions) regulations.​

Effective now, all warehouses with 250,000 sq ft or above must meet compliance to avoid mitigation fees. All warehouses over 100,000 square feet are required to report beginning July 31, 2024.​

With our on-staff regulation experts, we can survey your facility and give step by step instructions to electrify operations, and how to earn WAIRE credits.
