Bergstrom, designer and supplier of climate systems to the commercial vehicle industry, introduced Nite Plus, an improved version of its no-idling solution that complies with all idle restriction laws.

Nite Plus features updated heat exchangers and a redesigned airflow that results in a 30 percent increase in cooling capacity generated with less battery power. It consists of a rechargeable battery system that supplies electricity to a hermetically sealed air-conditioning unit and an auxiliary heater.

As a battery-powered, no-idling system, the California Air Resources Board-approved unit is able to generate high BTU cooling capacity without sending damaging emissions into the environment. This helps drivers reduce emissions and comply with increasingly stringent anti-idling laws while also saving money on fuel.

The system can reduce the average truck's fuel usage, some by 3,790 gallons a year, and save the owner more than $12,000 a year in reduced fuel costs and maintenance, based on the national average of idling 8 hours a day, 300 days a year and current fuel prices.

It is currently available as a factory-installed option on Freightliner Cascadia trucks and International ProStar and LoneStar trucks.
