In order to maintain cab comfort, drivers usually idle their engines while parked at truck stops, rest areas, and travel plazas, yet idling uses additional fuel and increases maintenance costs. By using Shorepower TSE instead of idling, you and your drivers can save money. Review the savings calculations to see how much can be saved from using Shorepower.
In simplest terms, you can save up to $3.00 per hour by using Shorepower instead of idling. And, unlike buying an APU or generator, Shorepower doesn’t require a large investment, ongoing maintenance, or battery replacements. If your truck doesn’t already have an outside receptacle for electric power, you can install a connection kit.
If your truck is already equipped for shorepowered electrical devices you can begin using Shorepower TSE for the price of a heavy-duty extension cord. These are usually available at a Shorepower travel plaza or online by going to our Store page.
