As the popularity of food trucks increases, sadly so does their carbon footprint. The small movable businesses offer many affordable and interesting alternatives for ‘fast food’ consumers, but they also use an average of USD 500 of gas a month to run their lights, refrigerators and cooking equipment — emitting as much nitrous oxide as approximately 186 cars. But a new initiative in New York City is hoping to change this, by introducing a fleet of energy-efficient solar-powered trucks, which can be rented out by independent vendors for five years at no extra cost to them.
