Fleet electrification services provider InCharge Energy, announced in a statement the launch of its latest turnkey solution, InCharge, as a Service. This EV charging subscription offering provides commercial fleets the infrastructure they need pegged to an uptime standard and paid for on a monthly or variable basis, without the stress of directly owning and operating the infrastructure themselves, according to the statement.
“Our first fleet partners are already appreciating focusing on what they do best – operating their fleets – because we are focused on operating their chargers,” said Terry O’Day, COO of InCharge Energy. “InCharge as a Service is a great solution to some of the challenges with fleet electrification, like hefty upfront investments, future-proofing those investments and balancing these costs between capital expenditures or operating expenditures. Perhaps most importantly, it allows companies to consider charging costs as fully variable so that they can understand the cost and timeline to scale up their electrification plans.”
InCharge as a Service is an option for fleets wanting a flexible EV charging solution that will scale as they add more EVs to their ranks.
InCharge as a Service includes the following end-to-end support for fleet customers:
- Planning and engineering of the charging infrastructure, whether the customer chooses an existing site or needs assistance with new site acquisition
- Commissioning of charging hardware and any other additional equipment as needed
- Free installation of the commissioned charging hardware and other equipment
- Service and maintenance of the chargers, with issue response times within 24 hours
- Access to and unlimited configurations of the In-Control software platform for charger monitoring
- Processing of government incentives and carbon credits, which can be applied to cover the monthly operating costs
