A Word to Fleet Owners
Fleet ownership carries tremendous responsibility. From the investment in Zero
Emission Vehicles (ZEV) to the expense of Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE), many critical choices need to be made. With the
desire to adopt electric vehicles into fleets; corporations, municipalities and government agencies are experiencing the global push
to increase their EV fleet numbers and slash emissions in a meaningful way. Across the board, policy-makers are collaborating to
develop and expand EV infrastructure to promote EV use and build the nations’ electrified roadmap. In one case study by Frito-Lay,
Mike O’Connell, senior director of fleet operations for Frito-Lay North America stated, “…charging stations [are] a significant
step forward for the Frito-Lay fleet as we continue on our sustainable journey.”
A sustainable journey sounds like a plan!
Fortunately, infrastructure design and implementation costs can be offset in most
cases by Federal and State incentives, rebates, and grants. A large Commercial Federal Tax Credit is offered to businesses that
purchase and install Electric Vehicle Charging Stations. This tax credit for 30% of qualifying costs, up to $30,000 may be applied
to each individual charging site.
Across the nation, most states are encouraging builders, developers and other business customers to include EV Charging Infrastructure in their projects by offering a range of rebate programs. In California, for example, the Bay Area Quality Management District (BAAQMD) Charge! Program reimburses up to $3000 per Level 2 charger, and up to $25,000 per DC Fast charger. Applicants may apply for up to $600,000 depending on number and size of stations requested (www.evconnect.com).
The above incentives and rebates are subject to change. Please see the following websites for up-to-date rebate offerings, incentive and infrastructure information:
With Cyber Switching Solutions’ revolutionary technology, the move to an all-electric fleet just got easier! Fleet owners can seamlessly
add the Electric Vehicle Master Controller (EVMC) into their existing charging stations, or plan to incorporate the EVMC into their new
infrastructure at the design stage.
What does this mean? Quite simply, where one EV sat at a single charging station supplied by one dedicated circuit, fleet owners could see four EVs served by that same dedicated circuit.
Can you say speedy Return on Investment? We thought so!
