Tractor trailer offers certified green idle technology

BURNDY announces tractor-trailer travelling billboard.

Manchester, N.H., July 16, 2010—BURNDY, a leading manufacturer and provider of connector solutions to the industrial, energy, construction, telecommunication, petrochemical, data center and transportation industries, has announced their new “Certified Green Idle” tractor-trailer.

This new BURNDY tractor-trailer travels between the company's Littleton and Lincoln, N.H. manufacturing plants to the Londonderry, N.H. distribution center. This new truck is "Certified Green Idle" technology and is one of the first of their kind in the U.S. to meet the 2010 emissions standards. This tractor-trailer uses an auxiliary power system to generate power for cab heating, cab cooling and operating ancillary cab appliances. These units can also be used to heat the engine block in cold weather and recharge the vehicle’s battery. Because of the engine’s smaller size, operating an auxiliary power system uses only a fraction of the fuel that would be used by idling the vehicle’s primary engine. Less fuel equals fewer emissions.
