Your Guide to Fleet Electrification

It’s an ideal time to hop on the electric fleet bandwagon. We’ve simplified the process to make the switch easier for you.

Nine Steps to Supercharge Your Fleet

Here’s everything you need to know, all in one place.

1. Consider Your Electrification Goals

Customers see the value in converting their fleets to electric for a variety of reasons including lower operational costs, environmental goals, and a healthier work environment. We’ve compiled a list of EV basics for fleet managers and a database of case studies to help you develop your electrification ambitions.

2. Identify Vehicles That Meet Your Needs

There are electric options for most light, medium, and heavy vehicles. Check out the directory of electric passenger vehicles and Class 1-8 vehicles to see if there are models that fit your needs.

3. Develop a Preliminary Infrastructure Plan

After you have identified your preferred electric vehicle options, you’ll want to begin planning for how you will charge your vehicles. We’ve compiled a list of commercial charging equipment for your consideration. We recommend customers consider installing networked charging stations to take advantage of features such as access control, data tracking, and managed charging.

4. Review Available Funding

Electric vehicles represent a tremendous opportunity to reduce fleet fuel and maintenance costs, while substantially reducing environmental impacts. Visit our Fleet Conversion Fuel Savings Estimator to learn more and explore our rate options.

5. Estimate Your Fuel Maintenance Savings

Good partners can help with planning, budgeting, permitting, construction, and installation. Based on feedback from customers, we’re developing additional fleet advisory services to be launched soon.

6. Engage Partners for Design and Construction

Engage with Dominion Energy early to ensure you’re developing the most cost-effective and efficient infrastructure plan.

7. Contact Your Utility to Get Power Requirements

Dominion Energy offers incentives as part of the Fleet Charging program. There may also be tax incentives or grants available.

8. Install and Activate Your Charging Stations

Ensure your charging infrastructure is operational and ready to meet your business needs. Consider a designated coordinator or champion to collaborate with drivers on questions and comments about the charging stations and provide feedback for future electrification efforts.

9. Maintain and Optimize Your Electric Fleet

Fleet electrification can be complex, but with proper planning, fleets can begin experiencing the benefits of electrification right away. We recommend customers get started, even on a pilot scale with one type of vehicle or one location. We also recommend customers consider managed charging strategies to maximize benefits and minimize costs.
