SolarOnTop, solar panels on a truck to save fuel today.

The SolarOnTop makes vehicle fleets more sustainable. The product consists of flexible solar panels on the trailer, paired with intelligent electronics. By using solar power on the truck, fuel consumption in siginificantly reduced, with an increase in reliability.

Save up to 5,5% fuel

The IM Efficiency SolarOnTop charges the truck battery and electrical systems. This reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The alternator stops generating electricity, leading to better fuel economy when driving. The SolarOnTop also supplies electricity when the truck is stationary and using electrical appliances. This makes it unnecessary to idle the truck's engine.

Increase uptime

The SolarOnTop charges the truck's battery and electrical systems while stationary, which minimizes the risk of failures due to empty batteries. Because the internal combustion engine doesn't have to idle for extended amounts of time anymore, engine wear decreases by up to 20% per year. This improved vehicle performance increases service to clients of transportation companies.

Supply power to the grid

When stationary next to a distribution center or other building, the SolarOnTop can be connected to the grid. These solar enabled trailers then supply the green solar electricity to the building and grid, decreasing costs and CO2 emissions. Trailers can become a mobile solar park, working both for the owner and the environment.

The intelligent solar solution for trucks

The IM Efficiency SolarOnTop can solarize both existing and new vehicles. This means it is not necessary to invest in new trucks or trailers to use the SolarOnTop. The product (PCT-patent pending) is designed in such way that current vehicle parks can become more sustainable. Additionally, when installing the SolarOnTop, there is no need to disrupt the electrical circuits of the truck. Installation is truly ‘plug&play’. The product adds a minimal amount of height and weight (+/- 2mm and 100kg).

The intelligent energy management system in the SolarOnTop constantly looks at available energy sources and energy demands. By supplying the clean electricity to the truck in a smart way, the management system ensures the optimal reduction of cost and emissions.
