HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -
A University of Alabama-Huntsville engineering student invented new green technology that could help save the Huntsville Police Department thousands of dollars every year.
Landon Self and his father started Zero RPM a year and a half ago. Their product is simple. When a vehicle goes idle, their technology allows the air conditioning and electricity to stay on without having to use the engine and gas for hours.
"In basically 18 months we went from something that was kind of an idea to something that was more marketable, more useable," said Self.
