Altec Industries announced that the California Air Resources Board (CARB) has approved the Altec Jobsite Energy Management System (JEMS) for use in any power take-off, diesel-fueled truck application with a gross vehicle weight rating more than 10,000 pounds.

Altec is an equipment and service provider for the electric utility, telecommunications, contractor and tree-care markets.

Altec JEMS is a product of Altec’s Green Fleet, designed to eliminate engine idle time at the jobsite and reduce fuel consumption, noise pollution and carbon footprint.

The JEMS is an integrated plug-in system powered by application-specific battery packs. The system provides power for the aerial device, truck cabin heating and air conditioning, and export power for hand tools and other electrical accessories.
