Incharge Energy launches Charging-as-a-Service program

Fleet electrification specialist InCharge Energy has launched a new turnkey solution that offers commercial fleets EV charging subscriptions pegged to an uptime standard and paid for on a monthly or variable basis. InCharge as a Service customers can choose to pay either by the mile or by the kWh.

InCharge as a Service is “a perfect option for fleets wanting a flexible EV charging solution that will scale as they add more EVs to their ranks,” says the company. “InCharge Energy bundles all the costs of an EV charging infrastructure into a monthly fee that varies based on utilization, making it much simpler for fleets to forecast and shifting the cost from a capital expenditure (CapEx) to an operating expenditure (OpEx).”

InCharge as a Service includes the following offerings for fleet customers:

• Planning and engineering of charging infrastructure

• Commissioning and installation of charging hardware and other equipment

• Service and maintenance, with 24-hour issue response times

• In-Control software platform for charger monitoring

• Processing of government incentives and carbon credits

“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.”
