Blackburn Energy

Each year, the US long haul fleet burns 1.2 billion gallons of diesel fuel for trucks to idle overnight. Rising fuel prices and a raft of environmental regulations that limit or prohibit idle time are increasing pressure on truck fleets to find an alternative to running the engine idle. Blackburn has invented a proprietary power generation unit that will save the owner $10,000 in annual fuel expense, plus reduce engine wear (estimated at 60K miles of simulated driving, per year); this will eliminate 11 million tons of CO2 and save $4.8 billion per year in the US.
