The MATS exhibit will showcase eNow’s solar-powered battery-charging solution – the first in the industry for Class 8 sleeper trucks. Learn how eNow harnesses the power of the sun to charge truck batteries, reducing high fuel costs and equipment repair.

Louisville, Ky. – March 21, 2016Dometic Group, a global provider of comfort products for the truck, RV, motor home, automotive and marine markets, today announced that it will host a special solar power exhibit at the Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS), March 31-April 2 in Louisville, Ky. The exhibit, at Dometic’s outdoor booth #92140, will feature eNow, the market leader in designing, developing, and manufacturing solar-based power systems for the trucking industry.

The exhibit will showcase eNow’s solar-powered battery-charging and power management solutions – the first in the industry for Class 8 sleeper trucks. Booth visitors can learn how eNow harnesses the power of the sun to charge auxiliary truck batteries, eliminating the costly problems of idling, high fuel costs, equipment maintenance and CO2 emissions.

“Dometic is constantly looking for new ways to be more environmentally friendly and we are impressed with eNow’s innovative use of a sustainable, green solution to recharge batteries that power our comfort appliances inside trucks, such as auxiliary air conditioners, refrigerators, portable refrigerator/freezers and safes, ” said Mark Minatel, Senior Vice President at Dometic. “Utilizing cutting-edge solar technology, we are able to capture, store and distribute power to various truck/trailer functions, such as the Dometic Blizzard Turbo auxiliary air conditioner, the Dometic CRX 3-in-1 refrigerator and other appliances while providing potential cost savings for owners and reducing emissions related to run time.”

Harvesting sunlight to charge batteries improves battery performance; this puts less stress on the alternator at idle and over-the-road, driving service costs down. In addition, the eNow system can keep a truck’s (crank) battery fully charged, which can reduce the need for emergency jump starts.
