Fleet Electrification Toolkit

Charging Infrastructure & Incentives

There are typically three types of fleet charging: depot, on-route, and opportunity. Depot charging, or overnight charging, occurs when vehicles charge overnight at a ‘home base’ location. Opportunity charging occurs when a vehicle charges at specific sites along its route—for instance, when loading or unloading cargo. Finally, on-route charging, or corridor charging, utilizes public charging sites along transportation corridors.

There are a number of resources to help drivers locate existing charging stations, and to help fleet managers to understand charging technology, charging station options, and incentives for purchasing and installing charging infrastructure.
