Bergstrom

The maker of cab and sleeper climate control systems, Bergstrom, has entered into a strategic partnership with eNow, a company that designs, develops and manufactures solar-based auxiliary power systems.

As part of the agreement, both companies will market their complimentary products, which are both CARB approved, to the no-idle industry in North America and Europe.

“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.”

As a battery-powered, no-idling system, the NITE system is able to generate high BTU cooling capacity without sending damaging emissions into the environment. This helps drivers reduce emissions and comply with anti-idling laws along with saving money on fuel.

The system generates power using the company’s proprietary solar system, which is then stored in the on-board battery system and distributed to various truck/trailer functions, such as Bergstrom battery-powered NITE no-idle system, when needed. Solar charging systems range from 30 watts, for keeping batteries charged, to 6,400 watt systems for refrigeration applications.

The eNow solar-based auxiliary power systems are specifically designed for the transportation industry, including medium and heavy-duty trucks, commercial buses, school buses and military vehicles.
