Solar-Powered Refrigeration Trucks Will Cut Pollution From Idling Diesel Engines


The transporting of tons of food to local supermarkets are normally cooled by diesel fuel. Idling diesel tractors burn about a gallon of fuel every hour while releasing more than 22 pounds of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.

Under the terms of a new agreement, XL Fleet will supply battery and power electronics systems for the first 1,000 units of eNow's new electrified refrigerated trailer solutions.

XL Fleet's mission is to help corporations and their fleets lower operating costs while helping them achieve their green goals.

eNow's solar systems capture the sun's energy with roof mounted solar modules, and then store the energy in auxiliary batteries used to power lift gates, in-cab air conditioning, refrigeration and lighting.
