Tesla and Frito-Lay to Launch Near Zero Emissions Distribution Facility
Tesla and PepsiCo’s Frito-Lay will work together to develop and produce a new “near zero-emission” distribution facility. According to the company, the facility will be comprise of a whole fleet of Tesla Semi electric trucks, a few other electric vehicles, a charging system, , as well as some Tesla energy storage systems and a solar array.
The project was launched as part of California Air Resources Board and San Joaquin Valley’s effort to curb air pollution from vehicles, which has been a real issue of public concern.
The State has granted Frito-Lay’s $30,764,486 project and will provide nearly half of the tatal funds needed for such a mission.
Frito-Lay will use the money to retrofit the company’s Modesto facility, Aside from the 15 Tesla Semis, other new equipment that will be tested as part of the project are listed in a filing:
15 heavy-duty Tesla battery electric trucks
6 Peterbilt e220 battery electric straight trucks
3 battery electric BYD yard trucks
12 Iron-Phosphate battery electric BYD forklifts
38 Volvo trucks fueled with ultra-low carbon renewable natural gas
On-site renewable energy generation (solar PV)
Energy storage systems from Tesla
Electric vehicle supply equipment
A publicly accessible renewable natural gas fueling station
The partners involving in the project includes Tesla, Volvo and BYD etc, but Tesla seems to be among the big one with several different products.
They described Tesla’s role in the filling:
“Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) [Tesla[ will deliver 15 highly anticipated Tesla Semis along with battery electric truck charging infrastructure, a largescale solar PV system, and two energy storage systems for facility peak shaving and heavy-duty electric truck charging.”
After the launch of Tesla Semi, PepsiCo secured 100 all-electric semis from the Silicon Valley automaker in 2017. Now some of them would go to the Modesto facility as part of this new project.
