The full-service ports allow truckers to receive air conditioning, Direct TV and 120v power without having to idle their trucks, thereby reducing diesel emissions. AMY WOLD | email@example.com Comments The IdleAir system was made possible through a grant from the state Department of Environmental Quality to the Greater Baton Rouge Clean Cities Coalition. The coalition, with a goal of promoting alternative fuel, fuel conservation and air quality improvements, partnered with IdleAir and the truck stop to install the system. Starting in August, there are now 18 full service parking spots which include air conditions, electricity and other amenities as well as 16 electricity only spots. Truckers pay for the service for all kinds of reasons including that it can be cheaper than burning the diesel for required rest periods which can be up to 34 hours or that it saves wear and tear on the vehicles. These reasons are particularly attractive to truck drivers who own and operate their own trucks, said Jeff Maurer, chief listening officer with IdleAir.
