The California Air Resources Board gave the Bergstrom NITE No-Idle System a big thumbs up when it certified the system for use in the Golden State.
The system featured a battery-powered and fully electrified sleeper air conditioning system for both over-the-road and engine-off operation. It is unique in that it is not a thermal storage device, but an actual air conditioning unit.
The approval by CARB certifies the standards Bergstrom sets in developing and designing climate systems. The NITE system also meets or exceeds standards set by the Environmental Protection Agency.
