A Solar Tray Cover for Pickup Trucks | Off Grid Energy Independence


Worksport, a manufacturer of high quality, cost effective tonneau covers and accessories for truck, is launching TerraVis, a platform for versatile and cost-effective solar power integrations for pick-up trucks. This innovation is the first to combine practical, durable tonneau covers with a solar generation and energy storage system. The company is presently in discussions with various parties interested in commercial partnerships with the TerraVis technology system, including a high-profile future electric truck manufacturer.


The concept TerraVis was conceptualized with the goal of elevating today’s pick-up trucks and creating more intelligent accessories. Solar panels built into the rugged tonneau cover, which Worksport has become known for, will collect the sun’s rays and store energy in multiple battery banks. This energy store can then be used in situ to provide power to an electric motor or can be removed and used remotely. For further information see the IDTechEx report titled Solar Cars, Buses, Trucks, Trains 2020-2030.


“Worksport is beyond excited to launch the website with this preliminary information, as this is a system that not only has the power to revolutionize truck use now, but also to carry over into future developments,” said WKSP CEO, Steven Rossi, “Everyone is moving towards solar power and renewable energy sources and so is the pick-up truck market. Our system is being designed to, among other things, provide a meaningful source of energy for the new wave of electric trucks.”
