Based on your selection of top vehicle electrification opportunities, determine your fleet’s charging equipment needs and develop cost estimates for purchase and installation.
Fleet managers need to consider operational and site logistics dictated by the needs of each application. For example, a fleet may choose to first electrify its light-duty vehicles that are garaged nightly. For many of these vehicles, Level 1 (120V) or Level 2 (240V) charging will likely be sufficient. But heavy-duty applications or those with less downtime may require access to DC fast charging (DCFC) stations at fleet facilities or elsewhere.
Close collaboration with the local utility is critical. Utility representatives will serve as a valuable resource in determining how to connect EV charging infrastructure to electrical service and whether any infrastructure upgrades are needed.
