Freightliner Offers eNow Solar Charging on Cascadia

Recommended Posts

Freightliner Cascadia raised-roof sleeper trucks can now be ordered with the eNow eCharge solar system as a pre-delivery installation.

The eNow system can be ordered through Freightliner dealerships and installed at Freightliner's Custom Truck Service centers located at each of the manufacturing plants.

The eNow solar system's 0.125-inch thick design is flexible to follow the aerodynamic roof contour of the Cascadia. The eNow system supplies ongoing power to the batteries, to meet the cab’s power needs while reducing idle time and fuel costs.

“The eNow system has continually proven its value in reducing costs, while also demonstrating its durability over diverse road conditions and in a variety of climates,” says Jeff Flath, president and CEO of eNow. “Drivers and fleet owners who order the eNow system pre-installed will begin realizing the benefits from solar the minute they take delivery.”

Pair this with battery-powered air conditioning and you have a nice fuel savings.

I have never slept in a truck with a APU or other device that allows the use of A/C with the Diesel engine off.  Im not sure I would sleep well without the "white noise" of the engine running?    Regardless this is a slick way to maintain voltage and use the A/C...but I wonder how strong it is. I can see a low tree branch causing a very expensive issue.

Thanks to more efficient batteries, today's battery-powered air conditioning systems do not require an auxiliary power unit (APU), eliminating cost and weight. Batteries should provide 8 to 10 hours of cooling.

I sleep a good 7-8 when I drive so that would work.  I wonder how  well it can maintain cool temps. I normally set the blower on low and the a/c to max cool. I wake up to 50 degrees some times...and Love it! I sleep better than at home LOL

I hear a lot of Old-Timers talk about how they can't sleep without the white noise of the engine... I shut my truck off and sleep better knowing how much fuel and wear-and-tear I am saving.
