Fleet electrification specialist In-Charge Energy has launched a new business unit specifically designed to secure grants and incentives that may be available under the recently enacted Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (aka the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal). In-Charge says its Invest in America E-Fleet Task Force will help position the company to secure millions in funding opportunities for its fleet customers.
In-Charge expects “massive funding opportunities for fleet electrification” to flow from Washington in the coming years. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal includes $500 billion for new projects in multiple transportation and mobility sectors, including public charging, school bus electrification, public transit electrification, emissions reduction at airports and ports, power grid upgrades and more.
“This team brings an incredible amount of experience and insider knowledge at an exciting time of growth for the fleet electrification industry,” said Cameron Funk, CEO of In-Charge Energy. “One of the biggest challenges to developing electric infrastructure is the cost, and we believe our new service will be one of the best solutions to accelerating the adoption of electric fleets.”
Helping to line up grant funding is one of the services that charging management firms such as In-Charge Energy offer. The company says it secured more than $10 million in grant funding for its customers in 2021. Projects that benefited from grants include a fleet of electric buses for a California school district and an order of electric semis and chargers for a long-haul trucking company.
“Our team is already well-versed in the nuances of government incentives, and their successes over the past year prove that,” said Terry O’Day, COO of In-Charge Energy. “Our Invest in America E-Fleet Task Force allows us to move quickly on what will certainly be a huge influx of funding opportunities over the next few years.”
