Thermo King is now offering Heat King solar panels on heating units to help fleets save money, increase battery life and maximum uptime. This is in addition to the unit providing maximum freeze protection.
“Heat King delivers maximum uptime, ease of maintenance and long-term reliability with its heavy duty, rugged and simple design,” says Tom Kampf, trailer product manager, Thermo King Americas. “If you pair the Heat King unit — which has 50,000 BTUs and is the highest capacity heater on the market—with solar panels, you get the added benefits of extending the battery life and saving money on fuel. It’s a win-win.”
Thermo King says Heat King solar panels also address the problem of heaters that sit all summer and likely are not fully charged at the end of last season.
“Just like the 50,000+ solar panels we have on the road today on a multitude of assets, adding a ThermoLite 40w solar panel to your Heat King unit offers many advantages including making sure batteries are charged regardless of the time of year,” says Chad Koll, solar product manager, Thermo King Americas.
