The North American Council for Freight Efficiency (NACFE) works to drive the development and adoption of efficiency enhancing, environmentally beneficial, and cost-effective technologies, services and methodologies in the North American freight industry. To assist in this goal, NACFE hosts webinars to promote innovation by sharing knowledge from experts within the industry.

The next edition of the webinar is featuring two Trimac innovators – Marcel Pouliot, VP of Industry & Regulatory Affairs along with Gord Max, Director of Fleet Distribution – who will share their experiences using solar panels on the new Cascadia Freightliners. Using solar panels for auxiliary power is a growing trend among fleet operators as main truck batteries are often no longer able to meet the power needs of today’s trucks due to new idle-reduction legislation and increased driver comfort demands.

The webinar will provide insight to attendees on how fleets can evaluate if solar panels are a good investment, as well as the many benefits solar energy can offer, including:

  • Minimizing engine idling while parked, providing fuel economy
  • Supporting battery HVAC systems and hotel loads without batteries
  • Reducing the expense and inconvenience of jump-starts and unplanned downtime
  • Increasing driver retention by powering computers, cell phones, microwaves, etc.
  • Supporting liftgate, telematics and reefer operations

The webinar is taking place on Wednesday, July 25 at 1pm ET. If you would like to participate in the webinar, you can register here:http://subscribe.act-news.com/solarwebinarregistration

If you are unable to attend, will be sharing the video of the webinar after the event on the Info Highway.
