In-Charge Energy, the fleet electrification services leader, has launched its Invest in America E-Fleet Task Force, a new business unit specifically designed to find grants and incentives stemming from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal. A division of the Public Affairs department at In-Charge Energy, this task force is among the first for the fleet electrification industry and better positions In-Charge to secure millions in funding opportunities for its many fleet customers transitioning to electric vehicles.
“We’re thrilled to kick off 2022 with the launch of this new task force,” said Cameron Funk, CEO of In-Charge Energy. “This team brings an incredible amount of experience and insider knowledge at an exciting time of growth for the fleet electrification industry. 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.”
With the passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act into law, the funding opportunities for fleet electrification will be massive in the coming years. The law includes $500 billion for new projects and spending in multiple transportation and mobility sectors, including: a national EV charging network, school bus electrification, public transit electrification, emissions reduction at airports and ports, power grid upgrades and more.
In 2021, In-Charge Energy secured more than $10 million in grant funding for its customers – before the passage of President Biden’s infrastructure legislation. This funding initiated dozens of important projects, from the largest fleet of electric buses for a California school district to the first 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.”
