Fleets looking to incorporate EV’s into their operations have several considerations to factor into the planning process. Identifying the vehicle model, availability and procurement timeline that may work for each duty cycle is a great place to start.  Many types of fleet EV’s are available or anticipated to hit the market soon. Here are a few examples of fleet EV's on the market today.

SIMPLIFYING EV PURCHASING

COSTARS is the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania's cooperative purchasing program. It serves as a conduit through which registered and eligible local public procurement units and state-affiliated entities are able to leverage contracts established by the Department of General Services to cost-effectively and efficiently purchase vehicles. There are many EV makes and models available through COSTARS.  Additional public contracting vehicles, like Sourcewell, may also be available to simplify the purchasing process.

CHARGING FORWARD FOR FLEETS

Working with a team of experts helps ensure the long-term viability and success of charging infrastructure projects. Complex variables including power availability, utility interconnections, peak demand, public charging networks and renewable power integration are important considerations that could materially influence fleet EV decisions. City planners, fleet managers, utilities and government are already working together with charging infrastructure providers to determine optimal locations and EV Corridors throughout the state. 

LOCAL FLEET SUPPORT

The Eastern Pennsylvania Alliance for Clean Transportation (EP-ACT) and Pittsburg Region Clean Cities (PRCC) support fleet transitions to alternative fuels and provide guidance on resources and funding for both the vehicles and infrastructure.
