According to Bergstrom, a SmartPTO-upfitted truck can save up to 1,890 gal. of fuel annually and eliminate approximately 42,300 lbs. of carbon dioxide. 

Both systems can be integrated into existing vehicles. eCoolPark can be integrated into existing vehicle HVAC systems and can be installed in multiple locations, including with the vehicle’s condenser, in the engine bay or through a remote-mounted compressor and condenser assembly. It utilizes SmartPTO’s battery capacity for its operation. SmartPTO has the option of adding additional battery capacity as well.

Likewise, SmartPTO can be installed and helps reduce maintenance costs by 69%, the company says. SmartPTO can be installed on in-field trucks, with installations typically taking less than two days, according to the company. Should a heavy-duty cycle on any given day utilize all of SmartPTO’s battery, the truck can be switched to operate its conventional PTO.
