Plateau Travel Plaza in Crossville

    below listed from the ETCFC.


Crossville TSE Project

• Project partners:  Plateau Travel Plaza
• Start date - End date:  August 20, 2009 - June 30, 2011
• Funder:  EPA, Region 4

This project to install 50 electrified and HVAC-supplied truck spaces at the Plateau Travel Plaza in Crossville garnered $581,849 in American Recovery & Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funds. Another $239,890 is being cost shared to bring the project total to $821,739.

The Plaza owner and ETCFC are collaborating to bring multiple anti-idling technologies to one truck stop with an expected installation completion date of April 2010. Due to the duo's hard work on cost reductions, they were able to squeeze into the project funding to include solar power to further increase the emissions reductions that the project is achieving. While replacing an idling diesel engine with local grid electricity is a substantial improvement in energy efficiency and emissions reductions, moving all the way to onsite renewable solar energy tzakes it to zero emissions (for the truck spaces energy use that will solar generation will offset).

Come to the Mayor’s Crossville Sustainability Fair

Cumberland County Fair Grounds - 1-5pm Thursday, April 29 2010


I welcome you to the Second Annual Crossville Sustainability Fair. For Crossville to develop sustainably, we must meet the needs of those who live, work and shop in our community today without compromising the ability of future generations who will call Crossville and Cumberland County home home to do the same.
As you visit the demonstrations of our many Sustainability Fair Partners, I want you to think about how you can make some of what you learn today a part of your life and the life of our community.
Thank you for coming. Sincerely, Mayor J.H. Graham, III
