CULLMAN, Ala.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Zero RPM Inc., a leading provider of patented vehicle idle mitigation systems, announced today that through its partners and customers, the Idle Mitigation System (IMS) prevented a record 589,000 lbs. of pollutants from being emitted by eliminating over 30,000 idling hours at the worksite during the past 90 days, as tracked by the IMS management tool, Intellimetrics® and based on data supported by the Department of Energy.
Lance Self, CEO of ZeroRPM, stated, “Idle mitigation at the worksite is a great way for commercial and emergency vehicles to contribute to America’s Energy Independence initiative to promote clean air, while reducing fuel costs, excessive engine wear, worksite noise and providing operators with cab comfort without running the vehicle’s engine.”
ZeroRPM Idle Mitigation System products are versatile enough to be integrated into a broad range of applications and on light to heavy duty chassis for utility, telecom, ambulance, fire, armored, recreational, police and K9, cranes, service and over-the-road and off-road commercial vehicles. Intellimetrics data indicates that vehicles that typically idle 100 or more hours each quarter are on average saving more than 3 hours per day in unnecessary idling with ZeroRPM’s IMS products and preventing more than 6 tons of pollutants per year from being emitted.
Furthermore, fleet managers across the county using ZeroRPM’s IMS that normally idle 200 or more hours each quarter are on average reducing their idling by more than 4 hours per day and are on track to achieve a payback in less than 3 years and a 5-year ROI in excess of 60%.
