Municipal Fleet Conversion

Fleet Conversion is a practical and cost-effective strategy for municipalities aiming to address climate goals and take the mantle of environmental leadership in their broader communities. Today, electric vehicles are produced by a variety of manufacturers, and include options for sedans, SUVs, pickup trucks, crossovers, sports cars, and compact vehicles. This means that no matter the needs of a municipality, electric vehicles can be cost-effective, high-performing solutions. Electric vehicles reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve local air quality.

Key Steps to Efficient and Effective Municipal Fleet Electrification

  • Identify municipal needs: Electric vehicles can be used for a variety of purposes, and their expected use will determine which vehicles are the best fit for a town. For example, electric vehicles intended for police use will differ from electric vehicles designated for general use by government employees.
  • Determine best placement of public charging stations: A key reason for municipal fleet electrification is to encourage residents to procure electric vehicles in their personal capacity. Installing public charging stations allows municipalities to promote their own efforts while also encouraging residents to make the switch to electric on their own. Chargers should be located in areas that are frequently visited year-round, where folks often leave their car parked for extended periods of time, and/or near housing units that lack garages and/or off-street parking.
  • Explore funding opportunities: New York State will subsidize the purchase of electric vehicles and charging stations for both municipalities and their residents. These savings allow towns and cities to save thousands of dollars when electrifying.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
