EPA Carbon Reduction Impact Calculator

April 22, 20241 min read

“One zero emissions SolarTechTRU is equivalent to reducing carbon by 20 tons per year; which is equivalent to removing 17.5 cars from the road, and 7,204 gallons of diesel burned, and 14.5 home electricity bills per year, every year.” - EPA Calculator

Happy Earth Day 2024

(BTW: Come see us at PFG in Gilroy for their Earth Day Showcase Event! Today)

Environmental Protection Agency, EPA makes it fun to calculate your impact

This calculator the EPA created, enables us at Advanced Energy Machines to calculate other equivalents to our carbon reduction and electricity grid burden impacts. We thought we'd share the equivalents, and the EPA carbon reduction Impact calculator with you.

ONE of our SolarTechTRUs eliminates 20 tons of carbon that diesel-powered TRUs emit, every year.

This is also equivalent to:

25.5 waste recycled instead of landfilled, every year.

4,841,224 smartphones charged, every year.

80,819 pounds of coal burned, every year.

8,252 gallons of gasoline consumed, every year.

3,369 propane cylinders used for home BBQs, every year.

You get the idea. You want to do your own emissions calculation?

Okay, there's one bonus reason why’s SolarTechTRU is the way to go.

You get the Koelsch
brothers, and how gives back.

Ron and Robert Koelsch have been innovating and commercializing disruptive technology for decades.

The AEM team has powerful backing, and they deliver.

Robert Koelsch, Co-Founder and CEO of, was awarded Alternative Energy Professional of the year by Thomson Reuters, 2022, and again for 2023.

The SolarTechTRU goes the distance more efficiently, reliably, cleanly, and safer than any TRU system on the market - and based on its innovative, patented design, and road test data, it's very likely no other TRU system will come close to its on-road safety and performance data anytime soon.

Zero Emissions, added safety, reduced expenses, and ESG achieved, 8 bolts at a time.
