Hub on the Hill wins grant for solar-run refrigerated truck

March, 2017

ESSEX — The Hub on the Hill is adding a new delivery vehicle, a solar-powered, refrigerated truck.

The new equipment is being added through an Adirondack North Country Association (ANCA) grant award from The Conservation Fund for Transporting Healthy Foods, according to Josh Bakelaar, ANCA’s director of local economies and agriculture.

“We are working to buy a vehicle with insulation already in place or to insulate it, probably a used vehicle, and outfit it with the solar powered refrigeration equipment,” he told the Sun.

It would be set up to take food from the Hub to buyers, possibly to areas where there is not much local distribution, he said.
