Case Study Insights: What Does it Take to Charge 100 Battery-Electric Trucks?

Source: ACT News

The JETSI project participated in a webinar to showcase:

  • What it takes to successfully deploy — and charge — heavy-duty BEVs in your fleet
  • New strategies used to minimize energy pricing and integrate solar and energy storage
  • How to make the business case for electrification at scale
  • How JETSI includes two separate fleets, each deploying 50 Class 8 battery electric trucks, for a total of 100 trucks, which is a significantly greater challenge than previous deployments but provides more lessons learned, to help more fleets transition to zero-emission operations
  • How to take advantage available utility funding programs so you can pay significantly less for your EV charging infrastructure
