Electric Refrigeration Reduces Fuel Consumption and Noise
Operators of refrigerated trucs and trailers, also known as reefers, typically idle auxilary diesel engines in transport refrigeration units (TRUs) when parked at their home-base locations to keep loads stored at the proper temperatures. Using electricity via electrified parking spaces versus idling diesel TRU engines results in substantially reduced operating costs and emissions while keeping cargo at the desired temperature.
