Fleets Expand Use of Solar to Charge Batteries in Trucks and Trailers

| July 28, 2017

Fleets use solar

Solar and other green technologies are increasingly important energy sources in the heavy-duty trucking industry.

With the latest advances, fleets can now take advantage of solar equipment to charge batteries in both trucks and trailers. These solar solutions are particularly useful during long summer days.

By working closely with clients and trucking industry leaders, Purkeys — which specializes in electrical needs of heavy-duty fleets— has created two product lines, the Solar Bolt™ and Solar Dash™, to solve problems fleets encounter in their daily operations.

The Solar Bolt is installed on the roof of a trailer to provide a constant charge to electrical accessories such as liftgate batteries and reefers. The Solar Dash is placed on the dash to help keep batteries charged over periods of inactivity.

These products provide supplemental charging systems that compliment conventional charging systems used by fleets. These solar solutions are a convenient way to help keep batteries at a high state of charge.
