As part of a legal settlement with the United States, Volkswagen is committing $2.7 Billion to support diesel reduction programs.
Use the form below to contact the U.S. Department of Justice and show your support for including EPA Smartway verified Truck Stop Electrification (“TSE”), such as IdleAir, among the programs eligible to benefit from the $2.7 Billion settlement.
With your help, these funds could be used to build more TSE locations or even create vouchers that give you free or discounted service.

In re: Volkswagen “Clean Diesel” Marketing, Sales Practices, and Products Liability Litigation, Case No: MDL No. 2672 CRB (JSC), and D.J. Ref. No. 90-5- 2-1- 11386.
Dear Mr. Cruden:
Please consider adding Truck Stop Electrification as an Eligible Mitigation Technology in Appendix D-2 of the VW settlement.
As a trucking company, we find our drivers often have to idle their truck engines overnight while complying with DOT Hours of Service requirements and maintaining a safe and comfortable environment while resting.
We consider expanding the availability of truck stop electrification, or providing vouchers to pay for the service, essential in addressing the needs of our drivers and in decreasing the need to idle our trucks.
