With the increasing anti-idling laws, the professional truck driver faces serious health concerns due to the lack of comfort controls. Unable to idle their trucks for heat or cooling usage during the federally mandated ten hour break, due to these laws or company policies, the driver is forced to rest in severe heat or cold, depending on the situation. The best solution to this problem is to install an APU unit to the rig, providing the alternative power source needed to rest in comfort, while saving on fuel costs and reducing carbon emissions.
The problem for many truck owner operators is coming up with the capital needed for the Auxiliary Power Unit, which can run as high as $12,000 to $15,000 and more. In the United States, 97% of trucking companies operate 20 trucks or less, and 90% operate six trucks or less. Smaller motor carriers such as these, who further operate on a small percentage profit scale, also find it financially difficult to locate the extra cash to equip their trucks with an APU system. A small trucking company with only five trucks would be looking at an added expense of $50,000 or higher. With the current state of the economy, finding the capital for such an expense can prove to be extremely difficult.
