Inside the cabin it's cool, thanks to this solar-powered air conditioning unit
The truck used in the trial of the i-Cool solar-powered cabin air conditioning unit
A trio of companies has joined forces to develop a truck cabin air conditioning system that uses solar energy generated from panels on the trailer’s roof area for its power. The i-Cool Solar system can save around 1.8 liters of light oil per hour when the truck is idle and reduce fuel consumption by about 1 percent when the truck is moving. If planned trials go well, we could see these units on highways in spring 2012.
