U.S. car giant Chevrolet is collaborating with IdleAir, a Knoxville-based company that provides a truck stop electrification service, to purchase up to 75,000 metric tons of carbon credits.

IdleAir (formerly known as IdleAire) had shuttered its doors in January 2010 but reopened later that year under new management. It currently has over 25 locations in 12 different states. The company has worked with other large brands like Virgin America.

In 2010, CE3 featured some of IdleAire’s first truck stop projects in Ohio in a case study which can be found here.
