The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has assigned eNow credentials signifying that the mounting system for eNow’s mobile solar systems meets Federal safety standards. eNow solar systems are mounted to the rooftops of trucks where they collect energy from the sun and charge the vehicles’ auxiliary batteries.
“Quality and safety are paramount at eNow, so we are proud to take this step,” said Jeff Flath, President/CEO of eNow. “Our patented mounting system includes multiple adhesives and a hi-temp thermoplastic frame. Together, they bond our systems to truck roofs virtually-permanently. Currently, we have more than 5,000 trucks with our systems mounted on top of their sleeper-cabs and trailers. Not one has peeled off, even partially.”
Unlike traditional commercial and residential solar modules which are encased in glass with metal frames, eNow’s panels are thin, flexible and lightweight. The panels are adhered to the flat surfaces of trucks and trailer roofs — virtually-permanently — using the industry’s most advanced adhesive systems. They are also aerodynamic, water-proof and dust-proof – so dirt, wind, and water have do not affect them. Truck washes also do not affect the systems.
eNow solar panels are designed to withstand hurricane force winds, ice, snow, sun and high heat. Its advanced solar systems are constructed of the highest quality materials and are thoroughly tested before they leave our factory. They also feature a full five-year warranty on both parts and labor.
Founded in 2011, eNow is a clean-technology company specializing in renewable energy systems. eNow’s product line includes proprietary systems that reduce engine idling, extend auxiliary battery life and run time for in-cab HVAC, hotel loads, liftgates, telematics, refrigeration units, and safety lighting. eNow’s patented solar panels are thin, flexible, lightweight – yet rugged enough to withstand the harsh environment on top of transport vehicles, including heavy-duty trucks, buses, and military vehicles. In May 2018, eNow introduced the first zero-emission solar-electric refrigeration system on a 53’ trailer. eNow system reliability has been confirmed by numerous case studies and white papers – as well as performance data from more than 5,000 eNow-powered vehicles on the road. http://www.enowenergy.com
