Duke Energy will install 36 electric power outlets at the Merchant Distributors’ Hickory distribution center as part of a $320,000 program to reduce carbon emissions by helping truckers keep tractor-trailer rigs cooled without having to run their engines. Duke contends the project will save about 31,000 gallons of fuel a year for trucks in the MDI fleet of grocery distribution trucks. “Most trucks can use electricity to keep cargo cold when not driving,” says Melisa Johns, Duke Energy’s vice president of business development.
