Among San Jose Moving Companies, England Van Lines is Experimenting with Wind Turbine Technology

Share Article

England Van Lines is making a test run with new prototype vehicles that use various aerodynamic designs that take advantage of wind flow patterns to use wind turbines on the exterior; these turbines are expected to generate electricity which will be stored inside fuel cells scattered throughout the new lightweight material used to construct these vehicles.

San Jose moving companies might be pushed aside with steep environmentally friendly competition in the form of England Van Lines. New prototype vehicles are being constructed from new lightweight materials, wind turbines, and solar panels. Solar panels on the roof of the vehicle store solar energy, while wind turbines scattered about the vehicle's exterior generate electricity as the truck moves. The longer these vehicles are on the road, the more energy can be stored, and the less gasoline is used.

When vehicles are not in use, they are kept outside of garages in order to take advantage of solar energy. Energy generated from both solar panels and wind turbines is then stored inside of fuel cells scattered throughout the hull of the vehicle. These fuel cells are only possible because of the new lightweight metal alloys recently made available to the company's fleet of moving trucks.

A company spokesperson commented on the new wind turbines. "We've been experimenting with difference hybrid sources of energy for quite a while now, and so the solar panels have been available to us for quite some time, as have the fuel cells. However, the idea of placing wind turbines at strategic locations on the outside of the vehicle is a novel concept only recently developed by our vehicle engineers. The truck's new aerodynamic design will trap wind and turn it into power, by funneling it into necessary abduction zones. If it sounds complicated, that's because it is. But this technology in addition to others is expected to greatly decrease the need for traditional fuels."

In fact, the combination of wind and solar energy in addition to electricity cells that can be manually charged at stations available all over the country is expected to cut the fleet's traditional fossil fuel use by a whopping 71%, a statistic unheard of among San Jose moving companies. England Van Lines are hoping to use a small amount of new revenue generated in order to open new locations around the country, and increase competition in key target areas.

The new vehicle designs are expected to be unveiled in the coming weeks, and specific details will become available inside of the gallery at the company's website: England Van Lines are expected to use some of the profits generated from these new greener technologies on additional research, while also promoting community involvement in environmentally friendly volunteer programs.
