Austin, TX (PRWEB) August 02, 2013
The Alameda County Sherriff’s Office has equipped eight of their Sherriff’s vehicles with Energy Xtreme’s Independence Package®, mobile electric power idle reduction systems. Sustainability is an integral part of Alameda County’s vision to become one of the best places in the country to live, work, and do business.
Energy Xtreme's mobile power idle reduction systems are a smart power management device that provides sustainable power, without engine engagement, to vehicles with demanding electrical needs. For the Alameda County Sherriff’s Office, the system allows their vehicles full electrical systems – including, but not limited to, emergency warning lights and onboard computer equipment - to operate without having to idle the vehicle's engine. It saves fuel, cuts emissions and reduces air pollution by eliminating the need to idle, extending the life of the vehicle by mitigating engine wear and tear. The Independence Package technology was battlefield tested by the U.S. Army Test and Evaluation Command (ATEC) and is ranked "most promising solution" receiving a "take to war" designation. The system is completely silent and doesn't leave a heat trace, providing stealth capabilities.
“All of our 8 vehicles are up and running with the IP2 units. A fantastic job was done working around the configurations of four different types of vehicles and getting our deputies vehicles’ out the door as fast as possible,” stated Phillip Kobernick, Sustainability Specialist, County of Alameda, General Services Agency.
