As the energy transition to electric transportation such as electric buses and trucks gains market momentum and political support, AMPLY Power is now delivering 100% clean energy to its electric fleet customers. The Charging-as-a-Service innovator now ensures only California-sourced renewable power from wind and solar sources is used by its California fleet customers to reduce the effects of climate change through the adoption of clean energy. AMPLY is already managing multiple gigawatt-hours of energy per year for its California customers.
"For any transit authority looking to make the switch to electric vehicle operations, guaranteeing that the energy we are using is renewable and carbon neutral, furthering our commitment to zero-emission transportation,” said Steve Ponte, COO of Tri Delta Transit. “AMPLY is over-delivering on this promise with its intelligent Charging-as-a-Service platform ultimately helping us realize a 40 percent savings.”
With this initiative, AMPLY is leveraging its proprietary charge management system, OMEGA™, to track and aggregate megawatt hours of electricity used by its California customers and purchasing renewable energy credits (RECs) to cover the amount of power being used. The renewable energy effort complements AMPLY’s overall electric fleet charging solution to ensure that each electric vehicle is charged with clean energy and ready for work each day, in exchange for a price-per-mile-driven fee. The company’s software also optimizes vehicle charging to minimize energy costs and maximize vehicle uptime.
“We’ve truly ‘flipped the switch’ to deliver 100 percent clean electricity to all of our customers, including Tri Delta Transit, Solano County Transit, Palermo Unified School District, and more,” said Vic Shao, CEO at AMPLY Power. “Not only does this help achieve countrywide decarbonization goals, but also helps customers reduce their Scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions. This renewable energy initiative ensures that our customers’ vehicles are truly operating on zero-emissions, without the high costs of generating and storing renewable energy on site.”
