Click here for the "Anti Idling Legislation Response: Standard Truck Stop Electrification (TSE) vs. Truck Star Systems" White Paper

 


Truck Star Systems is the elegant solution to the nationwide No-Idle debate. The movement to reduce diesel fumes and associated pollutants by eliminating the idling of big rigs while at rest is gaining momentum. Truck Stop Electrification (TSE) was introduced to provide power, heat, and air conditioning to the truck. This is a nice first step, but falls far short of the complete solution. The shortcoming is that fuel is still burned at the power generation plant, in other words we have only moved the location of the pollution. Truck Star Systems balances solar power collection with truck stop electrification, thus reducing or eliminating the pollution while reducing / eliminating the cost of electricity. Truck Star Systems provides a lower hourly cost than burning diesel fuel for the truck driver, moreover this is a new, increased revenue stream for the truck stop operator, and offers a significant return on investment.

Truck Star Systems addresses the current issues facing standard TSE systems. Our design is a win-win solution to the Anti-Idling debate, providing the truck driver / owner and truck stop owner with multiple benefits. This includes cost reduction, and increases revenue, while adhering to Federal, State and local laws. Truck Star Systems meets the core mission of Anti-Idling head on by providing a means to virtually eliminate the pollution produced by idling trucks or by a remote power plant providing power to a standard TSE system.

Truck Star Systems approach is to enable business conscious truck stop owners to make an intelligent decision. This decision will increase their revenue and profits, while reducing overall electrical expenses, and satisfy the EPA. The Truck Star Systems solution has the added benefit of reducing fuel costs for the truck / fleet owner, as well as reducing truck maintenance costs and providing the driver with a quiet, restful break in the comfort of their own vehicle.
