Kenworth Clean Power No-Idle System Qualifies for U.S. Federal Excise Tax Exemption

Kenworth has announced that the Kenworth Clean Power no-idle system has qualified for an exemption from the 12 percent U.S. Federal Excise Tax (FET).

According to Kenworth, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) SmartWay(SM) program has long recognized Kenworth Clean Power as a certified idle reduction device. The Internal Revenue Service recently acknowledged that it now recognizes such EPA-approved systems as qualifying for the FET exemption.

Kenworth Clean Power is available as a factory-installed option for the Kenworth T660, T800 and W900 models equipped with the 72-inch AeroCab® sleeper. The system may enhance fuel economy by as much as 8 percent for customers with high-idling times. Among the system’s benefits are factory installation, Kenworth warranty coverage, comprehensive no-idle features, and full compliance with California Air Resources Board (CARB) idling regulations for sleeper trucks with 2007 and later model engines.

Kenworth Clean Power uses dedicated, advanced deep-cycle batteries that power a thermal storage cooler with 21,000 BTUs of cooling capacity. The system has the capability to provide engine-off cooling and heating, plus 120-volt power for hotel loads. Once the truck is shut off, a sleeper control panel regulates the temperature range and a variable speed fan circulates chilled air through a duct located near the bunk.
