The company says the Modesto, Calif. ZE and NZE freight facility project will transform the 500,000-square-foot site into a showcase for environmentally sustainable manufacturing, warehousing and distribution.

The project is part of California Climate Investments (CCI). CCI funding is awarded by several state agencies including the California Air Resources Board (CARB).

Expected to be completed in 2021, the $30.8 million Modesto project will integrate an array of commercially available and pre-commercial ZE and NZE technologies in numerous applications, among them fleet vehicles and supporting infrastructure, on-site renewable energy generation and energy storage systems. The Modesto project will also contribute to industry knowledge of the emerging technologies by funding data collection and reporting of the project results, Frito-Lay says.
