Both the Department of Energy and the EPA are proponents of truck stop electrification. The most commonly recognized truck stop electrification is IdleAire, the full-service HVAC/TV/Internet/shore power provider.
The simplest truck stop electrification devices are plug-ins for household current. With an extension cord linking the truck and the power outlet, the 120-volt current can power air conditioners, space heaters, engine block heaters and hotel loads. Shore power can keep batteries fully charged, ensuring warmed engine starts regardless of weather.
