Stealth Power, the idle mitigation and scalable hybrid energy systems company, participated in the NYC Parks’ annual show demonstrating clean technologies for New York’s fleets and supporters of Vision Zero initiatives. The event took place at Flushing Meadows Corona Park, in Queens, NY.
Earlier this year, Stealth Power announced that the Fire Department of New York (FDNY) had ordered an additional 184 ambulances with the company’s Vehicle Power System, bringing the total number to 500 by the end of 2021.
Specifically, Stealth Power will demonstrate an FDNY ambulance with the Stealth system and the company’s F-150 demo truck.
FDNY responds to almost 2 million emergencies every year and serves more than 8.5 million people within a 302-square-mile radius. For rapid response times, ambulances are posted around the city. Before integrating Stealth Power’s Vehicle System, ambulances could idle for up to 10 hours each day.
“We are pleased and honored to help expand clean technologies across multiple life-saving fleets in New York,” said Devin Scott, chief executive officer of Stealth Power. “Stealth Power keeps critical equipment on with engines off, reducing fuel use up to 30% every month and helping large fleets transition towards a fully electric future."
Stealth Power is the leader in idle mitigation and clean energy for fleets with complex power needs, and installations include Stealth Power’s System Intelligence platform, powered by Microsoft Azure. Stealth Power’s solution incorporates sensors that collect data and sends it to Azure for safe and secure storage. Microsoft Power BI dashboards allow clients to easily manage the operational efficiency of individual vehicles or a whole fleet.
Since 2016, Stealth Power has helped FDNY save millions in fuel and maintenance costs while reducing CO2 emissions by over 100,000,000 pounds, meeting the state’s reduced emissions mandates and improving New York City’s air quality.
