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
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
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.
