As more U.S. transit agencies take their first steps toward electrification, an ecosystem of companies is bursting to life to help them with that transition. But with such novelty, it can be hard to find field data on the difference it makes to hire a professional fleet-charging service.
Now we have an early case study to point to. Amply Power, the fleet charging concierge startup from Green Charge Networks founder Vic Shao, just published the results from its first transit customer, Tri Delta Transit in Northern California’s Contra Costa County. Since the beginning of the year, Amply’s software-assisted charging management has produced average monthly power bill savings of 40 percent.
