To help organizations understand the charging required for fleet electrification, the potential increase in electricity use and what this means for the electrical capacity of the facility, the Go Electric Fleets Program will provide financial support for an facilities electrical assessment to help plan accordingly
This would include assessments that evaluate electrical capacity, required vehicle charging schedules and demand increase, energy management options; electrical service upgrades; conceptual design of electrical systems including charging infrastructure options, energy bill impacts; and, upfront costs.
To be considered eligible under this Program, an organization must:

Eligible costs include:
- A study offering an analysis of an organization’s electrical systems and options to address the increase in electricity demand resulting from fleet electrification;
- Medium-duty and heavy-duty vehicles can be included as a part of the assessment for the fleet to take a holistic view of their potential energy demand.
