Electric vehicles may benefit fleet operators. As a transportation fuel, electricity is less expensive than gasoline. Organizations with vehicles used primarily in the local area should consider applying. With fully charged driving distances of 200-300 miles (less in the winter) modern electric vehicles may provide plenty of range for daily activities.
Chugach will reimburse up to $1,500 of the installed cost of an EV charger for fleet vehicle operations. There is a limit of two reimbursements per metered location. Members will be required to prove the equipment has been installed and also share plans for ownership or lease of electric vehicle (either BEV or PHEV).
This program is also available for rental car companies with a retail counter at the Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport and the operator of the rental center at TSAIA.
In return for the credit, upon request customers must agree to share with Chugach their observations about the use and economy of an EV in fleet operations.
