Li-Ion Auxiliary Power Systems to Meet Idle Reduction Goals

Volta’s complete systems integrate seamlessly into any chassis with high-power alternator charging options and no special infrastructure requirements.
SAFE & RELIABLE
All Day or Night
Our systems provide all the power you need to cleanly and quietly power lights, medical equipment, tank circulation, cabin A/C and more for an entire shift without the need for idling or recharging.
Dependable and Volta deliver first-in-market anti-idle APUs for Toronto Fire Services
Each of the 16 fire trucks contracted for Toronto Fire Services is estimated to save the department $11,833 USD annually in maintenance and fuel costs. Each will also eliminate up to 19,569 lbs in CO2 emissions every year.
Scale & Customize
We’ll work with you to scale your energy storage to fit the needs of your fire or EMS vehicle. Distribution is customizable through a system of pure-sine AC inverters (120V, 240V and 208V three-phase) and DC conversion to any voltage you need.
The Performance You Expect from an Automotive-Grade Solution
Volta systems are compatible with chassis from any manufacturer, no matter how diverse your fleet. Our standardization makes it more economical to implement fleet capital improvements.
All The Power You Need
Our systems provide more than enough capacity for your fleet to run power tools, hydraulics, air conditioning, micro-grid and more without the need to idle or run a generator.
Volta systems are virtually maintenance-free and decrease the wear of idling on the main engine. And unlike drop-in LFP systems, ours are designed to last the lifetime of your truck.
