Duke Energy announced Feb. 1 a major step to help municipalities and large businesses with all the planning, financing, acquisition, and deployment services to electrify their fleets. The company, eTransEnergy LLC, a subsidiary, will provide unregulated services to assist municipalities, school districts, transit services, and companies across the country achieve their economic and sustainability goals as they transition to clean energy transportation options.
Commercial fleets looking for reduced emissions, less noise, better performance, and lower operating costs now have one comprehensive source for transitioning their fleets to electric vehicles (EVs).
To help spur EV adoption, Duke Energy is launching several pilot programs that deliver a more expansive charging infrastructure throughout its service territories. In Florida, the company’s pilot is off the ground with over 570 charging stations nearing completion. Duke Energy has received approvals for pilots in North Carolina and South Carolina as well, and has a proposal pending in Ohio.
