Fleet

Get Your Fleet Moving More Efficiently

We’re here to help your company move forward with converting your fleet of light-, medium-, and heavy-duty vehicles to electric transportation.

After you’ve reviewed the information on this site, please contact your Account Manager or call 1-800-990-7788 to discuss Transportation Electrification (TE) for your business.

 

The Benefits of Having an Electric Vehicle (EV) Fleet on the Street

Switching from vehicles powered by an internal combustion engine to an electric fleet can go a long way toward reducing operating expenses with lower fueling and maintenance costs. Going electric is also an effective way for your organization to reduce emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gas, achieve sustainability goals, and position itself as a green leader in the community. Plus, your business may qualify to save on EV purchases, leases, or installation through federal and state incentives.

TE Advisory Services Overview

We currently offer several services to help you adopt and make the most of transportation electrification. We will be your comprehensive resource for the information and support your business needs throughout its transition to EVs—and down the road.

Types of Electric Vehicles

An important step in your decision to upgrade your fleet is understanding the different types of EVs available. Take a moment to learn more so you can choose the best fit for your business.

Plug-In Hybrid

A Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) has both an electric motor connected to a battery and an internal combustion engine. To charge its battery, employees can plug it into a standard electrical outlet or a charging station. PHEVs use the energy stored in the battery to run, but they can travel many more miles on gas, with a much higher fuel efficiency than most conventional vehicles.

Battery Electric Vehicle

A Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) is 100% powered by electricity. With no reliance on gasoline, BEVs emit no pollutants, and drivers never need to pull into a gas station.

Navigating Charging and Installation

The speed and frequency needed to charge your fleet will determine how many and what type of charging equipment you need. There are three charging levels with varying voltages and speeds available.

More Less

EV charging equipment is categorized by how fast the batteries are charged. Charging times depend on EV type, battery type, capacity, and the level of depletion. Based on these factors, it can take anywhere from 20 minutes to 20 hours to complete a charge.

Level 1 Charging
1 hour of charging = 2–3 miles of range
Charge port: J1772

Level 1 charging occurs with a standard 120-volt AC outlet and the J1772 cord set usually sold with the vehicle, so no additional equipment is required. An 8-hour charge at Level 1 may accommodate an average daily commute.

Level 2 Charging
1 hour of charging = 7–20 miles of range
Charge port: J1772

Level 2 charging requires 240-volt or 208-volt electrical service and uses the same J1772 charge port as Level 1 equipment. All EVs sold commercially may charge at either Level 1 or Level 2.

DC Fast Charging
30 minutes of charging = 50–80 miles of range
Charge ports: J1772 combo, CHAdeMO, Tesla combo

DC fast charging enables you to charge at a much more rapid rate—typically 80% of the battery capacity in 30 minutes. Charge ports for DC fast charging are not available on all EVs and may vary by vehicle make and model.

Get Rolling with a Rate that Works for You

We offer three non-residential, separately-metered rate options for EV charging. These rates may help lower your bill, particularly if most of the charging takes place off-peak.

Rate Option 1: TOU-EV-3

This Time-Of-Use (TOU) rate, TOU-EV-3, is designed for smaller premises and has two options. Option A features no Facilities-Related Demand (FRD) charges, while Option B will bill FRD charges based on the monthly maximum registered kW demand. The allowable EV load for this plan cannot exceed 20 kilowatts (kW). The TOU-EV-3 rate is a separately-metered rate, so be sure to let your installer know you’ll require a second meter when you request a quote. Get the details and review the chart below.

TOU-EV-3-A Rate Schedule
  Summer Winter
On-Peak
Noon to 6 p.m. weekdays except holidays
32 cents / kWh 14 cents / kWh
