Arpin Renewable Energy and eNow Form Partnership to Provide Solar-Powered Systems for Moving Trucks

Arpin Renewable Energy has joined with eNow, a Rhode Island-based company which supplies energy solutions to the transportation industry, to provide Arpin Van Lines agents and owner-operators access to cleaner running moving trucks.

eNow’s solar panel systems, which are retrofitted onto a company’s existing trucks, use the latest in technology to capture and convert the sun’s energy into usable power to reduce vehicle operating costs and greenhouse gas emissions.

“We believe strongly in the work that eNow is doing to make industrial transportation greener,” said Peter Arpin, president of Arpin Renewable Energy and partner of Arpin Group. “Arpin Van Lines has been testing these systems on its moving trucks for the past two years and we have witnessed significant cost savings. We want our agents across the country to be among the first adopters of this technology and become a model for other transportation industries to follow.”

“There are over 15 million medium and heavy duty trucks on the road and over 650,000 trucking companies in the U.S.,” said Jeff Flath, founder and CEO of eNow. “Growing regulations on idling time as well as fluctuations in fuel costs are encouraging transportation companies to seek alternative means of saving money. We are thrilled to be partnering with Arpin Renewable Energy to make our solar power technology accessible to all transportation industries.”

Through eNow's specially designed rooftop panels, most of the truck’s accessories are able to run solely on solar power. The photovoltaic cells capture energy through the panels and then store it in batteries in order to distribute it to features in the truck. The panels greatly cut-down on emissions since truckers normally idle their vehicles overnight in order to run their in-cab entertainment and HVAC systems. However, through eNow's panel system, drivers are able to shut down their truck engines and instead run the systems with the batteries. Other applications include powering lift-gates, refrigeration units and safety lighting.

eNow is offering several financing options to minimize the financial risk for companies which are exploring the cost savings of solar technology. Visit enowenergy.com for more information.
