Earlier in 2012 the Raleigh Police Department installed mobile power idle reduction systems in 29 police vehicles. The project was funded by an energy efficiency and conservation block grant.

The systems, provided by Energy Xtreme, are power management devices capable of providing power without engine engagement to vehicles with demanding electrical needs. For Raleigh, the system allows their police cruiser’s full electrical systems – including lights, onboard camera, computer and radio – to operate without having to idle the vehicle’s engine for at least four continuous hours.

The system automatically recharges while the vehicle is being driven. It saves fuel by increasing the vehicles MPG and reduces emissions by eliminating the need to idle, extending the life of the vehicle by mitigating engine wear and tear. Additionally, the system is completely silent and doesn’t leave a heat trace, providing stealth capabilities.

Since being installed, the Energy Xtreme systems have saved Raleigh over 3,000 gallons of fuel, prevented the emission of 59,326 pounds
