While solar panels on commercial vehicles have been shown to deliver significant fuel savings, this is a bonus rather than the primary reason for installing them. Genie Insights believes the greatest benefits come from improvements in battery performance and reliability. Solar panels keep batteries charged which reduces battery degradation to improve battery health and longevity.
By ensuring that the battery is continually trickle charged, the length of time the fridge alternator needs to run is reduced. This will result in reduced fuel consumption.
