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

Refrigerator trucks are an important piece of our capitalist economic systems, as without them a lot of products would be damaged and wasted.
But like everything that runs on diesel engines, these trucks are also high polluters and contribute to the emission of greenhouse gasses.
But a provider of solar power solutions is looking to equip refrigerator trucks with more sustainable technology. XL Fleet’s idea is to put solar panels on the roofs of trucks and agreed with eNew to help them develop sustainably powered vehicles.
XL Fleet will provide batteries to the first 1,000 units, as this is their way of helping big companies reduce their carbon footprint and help build a more eco-friendly world.

eNow’s trucks capture the solar power through their roof panels and store the energy on batteries and the trucks are expected to be up and running by the first quarter of 2022. This unique partnership can serve as an impulse for other transportation companies all over the world, to change the way they do business and focus more on how they can reduce their impact on the environment.

“This partnership will change the way the transportation industry thinks about energy and refrigerated transportation,” said Jeff Flath, President and CEO at eNow, “[and it will help] to eliminate a major source of diesel fuel consumption and emissions for fleets.”

The system is anticipated to be delivered to operators during the first half of 2022.
