HIGHLANDS, NJ - The Highlands Library will be sponsoring a demonstration of an alternative fuel vehicle as part of the Earth Day 2011 observance.

On Sat. April 23, 2011 one of the two largest, all-electric powered, zero tail-pipe emission commercial trucks working in the United States will be on display at Huddy Park, Highlands.

This vehicle works daily in NYC. The purchase of the truck was assisted by a grant from the Federal Dept. of Energy, which was administered by the NYS Energy Research and Development Administration.

This will be an opportunity for the public to see the design and components of the electric truck, and to learn about the technical and operational details first hand. Representatives from New Deal Logistics, owner of the vehicle, will be on hand to answer questions.

There will be information about possible and practical applications of sustainable, alternative fuel solutions for personal and commercial use.

The Highlands Boro Library will have a display of books and other materials about alternative fuel sources and clean energy from April 15 through April 30, 2011.
