Published On Apr 02, 2016
One of the most interesting features of the Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS) currently being held in Louisville, Kentucky, is the new solar-charged truck battery system introduced by Dometic Group. By harnessing the power of the sun to charge auxiliary batteries, this green technology can significantly help in the reduction of CO2 emissions and save fuel and maintenance costs.
Dometic also claims that the solar power improves battery performance, put less stress on the alternator at idle. Also, the eNow system has the capability of keeping a truck’s (crank) battery fully charged, thus helping reduce the requirement for emergency jump starts.
Speaking on the occasion, Mark Minatel, Senior Vice President at Dometic, said, “Dometic is constantly looking for new ways to be more environmentally friendly and we are impressed with eNow’s innovative use of a sustainable, green solution to recharge batteries that power our comfort appliances inside trucks, such as auxiliary air conditioners, refrigerators, portable refrigerator/freezers and safes.”
The new green power system is a part of Dometic’s booth at the MATS show that features its eNow partner that is a market leader in the design, development and manufacture of solar-based power systems for the trucking industry. A global provider of comfort products for the truck, RV, motor home, automotive and marine markets, Dometic Group’s new environmentally friendly solution also helps eliminate costly idling expenses.
