ROCKFORD, Ill. — Bergstrom has entered into a partnership with eNow, which will enable it to use solar power to run its NITE no-idle systems.
“With unstable fuel prices, increasing idling restrictions and the growing concern about greenhouse gas emissions, the eNow solar system will provide a valuable solution for our customers,” said Jack Shaffer, president and CEO of Bergstrom. “eNow’s solar energy solutions are a great complement to our battery-powered NITE units.”
The eNow solar-based auxiliary power systems generate power from the sun, which is then stored in the on-board battery system and distributed to power various truck and trailer functions, including the Bergstrom NITE no-idle system, the companies announced.
“We are very excited about this joint marketing agreement with Bergstrom,” said Jeffrey Flath, president and CEO of eNow. “There is huge potential for solar power generation within the transportation industry – both environmentally and financially. The Bergstrom NITE system is a perfect application for this type of solar-based auxiliary power system.”
