Truck Stop & Fleet Electrification

Electrify Your Truck Stop or Fleet

Truckers are required to take a ten-hour rest after every eleven hours of driving. They often use truck engines to power cab amenities during the rest periods resulting in unnecessary fuel consumption and cost, as well as emissions from the idling engine.

Truck Stop Electrification operates independently of a truck’s engine allowing the truck engine to be turned off as the TSE system provides off-board electrical power to these cab amenities such as heating, cooling and electrical power.

Installing TSE systems powered by Entergy, where drivers can plug in their vehicles, reduces main engine idling by providing an alternative source of energy. This results in lower emissions and an economical way to provide electricity to power cab amenities.

Truck Stop and Fleet Electrification Makes Sense

  • Truck drivers can use necessary services, such as heating, air conditioning or small appliances, without requiring them to idle their engine.
  • A normal extension cord rated for outdoor service can be used to plug into a TSE system.
  • Reduced main engine idling lowers emissions and offers an economical way to power cab amenities.

Plug Into the Benefits of Truck Stop Electrification

The benefits of TSE serve a variety of stakeholders including the public, truck drivers, fleet owners and gas/service stations.

Reduced Costs for Fleet Owners

If you’re an Owner Operator or Fleet Manager, TSE systems lead to lower fuel costs and reduced maintenance.

Many fleet owners provide truck drivers with a full suite of services including internet, telecommunications, air conditioning and 120V electric outlets. The reduction in idling engines reduces engine degradation and lowers the hourly cost of burning diesel fuel, improving the bottom line for fleet owners.

Improved Operations

Truck drivers get a cleaner, quieter night’s sleep by reducing noise and emissions from idling diesel engines. This leads to happier, better-rested more alert drivers.

Increased Revenue for Service Centers

Adding TSE systems to truck stops offers a new way to serve customers, improve loyalty and create a new revenue stream.

This offers a significant return on investment for TSE system installation costs.

Environmentally Friendly

An average truck produces over four tons of nitrogen oxide emissions and twenty tons of carbon dioxide emissions while idling. Eliminating the need to idle truck engines to power necessary systems within the cab reduces diesel fumes and associated pollutants.

Did You Know?

Entergy’s service territory is a multi-state network with over eight major highways running through it. Over 8,500 trucks per day use these high traffic distribution channels. Currently, there are less than 10 truck stops with electrification sites within Entergy’s territory, and most of them are only available in the major cities. By 2040, heavy-duty truck traffic across the country is expected to increase dramatically on the major Interstate arteries and daily miles traveled could exceed 662 million miles per day.
