Start thinking about a pilot program as a trial run for your team.
If your fleet includes light-duty vehicles, light-duty electrification is a great “training wheels” project before tackling medium and heavy duty.
How will you define expected results and monitor actual results?
Decide whether you want to install vehicle telematics or smart chargers to track energy used as fuel in budgeting and billing.
While telematics may be an additional cost, data can help you understand how your vehicles are used and how to to operate vehicles more efficiently.
While smart chargers are an additional cost, they have the additional benefit of allowing your fleet to manage charging and reduce electricity costs- reducing peak draw and/or avoiding high time of use rates where possible.
Some grants will require telematics or charging data to receive funding.
Based on the information you have so far, consider which factors will likely influence which vehicles/routes you electrify first: available technology, budget, legislation, health impacts of communities on specific routes (e.g., decreasing emissions on routes that place a significant pollution burden on low-income communities).
