The company says all of its energy now comes with zero CO2 emissions. 

"This certification is very important to Mack Trucks and RVO, specifically, because it allows us to act on our public commitment to sustainability," says Antonio Servidoni, vice president at RVO. "Mack not only offers electric vehicles, such as the Mack MD Electric that will be assembled here at RVO later this year, but also it is committed to working toward a sustainable future in our facilities." 

Appalachian Power's program allows customers to purchase energy generated by renewable power generators that run on wind, hydroelectric power and solar energy. The provider has 338 megawatts of renewable resources available to Virginia customers through the program, which is enough to power 75,000 homes, Mack says. 

"RVO is among Appalachain Power's key participants in the WWS program," says Aaron Walker, Appalachian Power president and CEO. "RVO's emphasis placed on sustainability and environmental stewardship is industry-leading, and we are pleased to be able to offer this option for business and industrial customers seeking to power their operations with 100% renewable energy." 

Mack established RVO for the production of the Mack MD Series, which started in 2020 and, later this year, will also include the Mack MD Electric.
