Lower Upfront Cost
Proterra can retain ownership of the energy delivery system needed to power your electric fleet, reducing your risk and upfront cost. Customers can choose to invest up front or “pay-as-you-go”, paying for the infrastructure and batteries like they do today for their energy. With Proterra responsible for ownership of your electric fleet’s energy delivery system, your organization lowers its upfront cost and can procure electric vehicles at a cost similar to combustion engine vehicles.
Along with owning batteries and charging systems, Proterra can provide infrastructure upgrades needed for your facility that can be paid for over time, further reducing upfront costs. By collaborating with your local utility, evaluating energy sources, modeling fleet usage and optimizing charging around appropriate electricity schedules, tariffs, and available incentives, Proterra can help you minimize demand and time-of-use charges to enable your organization to take advantage of the best possible electricity rate for your fleet.
Less Risk, Less Hassle
Proterra will ensure your charging systems and batteries are running optimally and delivering the energy you need, so that your team can focus on normal fleet operations. By transferring the risk of ownership, your organization can also avoid the hassle of applying for and reporting on utility and other incentive programs, environmental credits and other potential funding sources.
