Cummins hybrid energy systems are presented as off-grid power solution concepts that help recreational vehicle (RV) users as well as maintain a comfortable experience in a variety of environments.
The system utilizes large lithium-ion battery packs intended to store energy to power on-board devices from anywhere. This battery relies on a solar panel to charge, but also boasts the vehicle’s alternator charging to provide additional support in off-grid environments. A 2.8kW Onan QG 2800i petrol generator helps keep the battery from dying completely.
The Cummins hybrid energy system also features a distribution hub ready to manage both the input and output from the aforementioned power sources. This system can support up to 500W of solar input.
