UNION CITY, Cal. — Glacier Bay has announced it has added shore power capability to its ClimaCab electric auxiliary power unit (APU).
With the shore power option, drivers are able to keep cab temperatures comfortable as long as they want while recharging the ClimaCab and truck batteries.
“We’re extending our lead in providing the only no trade-off solution for fleet operators who need to control costs and give their drivers climate certainty when stopped for long periods of time,” said Charles Fetter, Glacier Bay’s ClimaCab general manager. “ClimaCab already provides the best payback in the industry for fleet operators and the shore power option helps them keep costs even lower by providing unlimited power when vehicles are stopped for extended periods.”
The ClimaCab can be plugged into any 110-volt electrical outlet and features two 110-volt outlets inside the cabin, which can be used to power electronics or appliances. It takes about six to eight hours to fully charge the ClimaCab system, the company notes.
The shore power option costs about US$900 with volume discounts available, the company says. For more info, see a ClimaCab dealer or visit www.glacierbay.com.
