Commercial Fleet Electrification 11.3.21

Commercial fleets are looking at electrification. They know it is the future of the industry for economic, environmental, and regulatory reasons. Vehicle manufacturers are releasing electric vehicles designed to handle the routes and distances commercial fleets regularly travel.

With businesses moving away from fossil fuel-powered vehicles, commercial fleet electrification is closer than you think. So how do you smoothly transition to an electric fleet?

How to Start Your Commercial Fleet Electrification

The first step towards a commercial fleet electrification project is to contact your electrical provider, or an EV charging company that specializes in electrical upgrades. You need to know if your location can supply the necessary power to keep your fleet fully charged.

Identifying the amount of power you need from the electrical company includes knowing the type of vehicles in your fleet, along with their battery capacity. You also need to know route distances and the type of terrain. For example, vehicles on longer or hilly routes will require more power.

Bringing the power you need for your electric fleet comes at a cost. Knowing what you need ahead of time will save you time and money. You don’t want to have to make adjustments to the power supply at a later date.

Use Software to Manage Energy Costs

You can optimize energy costs by using software to manage electrical usage. You want to think of electricity as fuel and use similar methods to manage costs.

The right software will keep fleet vehicles fully charged and ready to run routes. It can also reduce the already low energy costs by allocating power only to vehicles needing a charge. Even with other vehicles plugged in, the software will prevent them from using power once their batteries are charged.
