TEC remains committed to being the equipment experts for all our customer needs as the country’s emphasis on clean transportation grows.
There is a shift happening in the transportation industry towards clean transportation and electromobility, including widespread adoption of battery electric vehicles (BEVs). 在TEC, we cannot emphasize how important it is to get started early in planning how this shift affects you and your business.
Our team believes a true collaborative partnership with you can either make, 或者破坏, the success you find in the transition to battery electric, 及以后. 你不仅需要合适的设备, 但它需要在财务上有意义, and must provide reliable and flexible charging solutions and 基础设施 to keep your fleet up and running, 不管那是一辆卡车, or 1,000.
While there remain numerous questions around regulations, 基础设施, 资金和时间表, TEC Equipment’s EV project team helps evaluate how 电动半挂车 fit within each customer’s unique operations, plan through their needs from charging to incentives and anticipate the future with proven quality products from all our EV equipment providers including Volvo, 麦克, 海电, 日野和五十铃.
TEC follows our established and proven-successful approach to helping customers walk through what moving to clean transportation means for them. Our team works hard to uncover the details that drive your battery electric and zero emissions success:
从那里, our team walks with you through an analysis of total cost of ownership (TCO), 资金和激励机会, 基础设施需求, 还有路线方面的考虑.
There are many considerations of owning and or operating medium- and heavy-duty battery electric trucks.
Critical to planning for the adoption of battery electric trucks is assessing the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). 许多因素会影响总拥有成本, and those factors are highly individualized to each of our customers and their business. 这些因素包括:
- 基础设施考虑(e).g. 充电站)
We highly advise that any true assessment of total cost of ownership should include working with our knowledgeable EV team to ensure all costs are considered. TEC的销售人员有多年的从业经验, first-hand experience working with customers to understand all these factors, and continues to further our own knowledge base daily on legislation and regulations that are ever-evolving.
A more generalized assessment tool is offered by 加州 HVIP. 它的 总拥有成本工具 considers some of the above factors, and may be a starting point for those considering BEV options.
电动汽车奖励、代金券、 & 奖助金
一些激励措施, 代金券和补助金可从联邦政府获得, state and local sources to help defray the cost of zero emissions transportation. TEC believes helping a customer secure tailored funding is central to the immediate and long-term success they will experience in getting the most out of their investment in clean transportation. There can be complexities in finding and securing these various forms of funding, so we make sure to start by asking our customers questions about their basic and more complex business needs. Then we use various funding finder tools to determine what funding is applicable and available to you.
Central to 加州 customers’ adoption of ZE transportation is the 加州 Hybrid and Zero-Emission 卡车 and Bus Voucher Incentive Project. This program works directly with dealers like TEC, to apply incentives at time of purchase. As of Spring 2023, the Standard HVIP program includes:
- 4-5级= 6万美元的底料
- 6-7级= $85,000基数
- 第8类= $120,000基数
Additional resources available to help find funding opportunities for sustainable transportation include:
- Advanced Vehicle Technology and 基础设施 Funding Finder Tool a powered by CALSTART to search and filter for medium- and heavy-duty alternative fuel vehicle and 基础设施 programs in the state of 加州
- Southeastern Alternative Fuel Deployment Partnership Project (SEAFDP) from Georgia, offering up to 100% of the incremental cost of the electric truck.
- 拖运卡车更换计划 from Maryland, offering up to $30,000 per electric truck.
- 电动汽车项目 from Massachusetts, offering up to $90,000 per electric truck.
- 密歇根州燃料转化计划第一部分 提供高达70%的总电动卡车成本.
- 纽约卡车代金券奖励计划 (NY-TVIP) offering up to $185,000 per electric truck.
- 犹他州清洁柴油计划 offering up to 45% of the total cost of the electric truck.
Deploying battery electric trucks involves a number of 基础设施 considerations. 比如充电解决方案, 公用电力供应, long-term facility and site plans – all have vast implications on charging requirements and utility needs. TEC helps ask questions and find solutions for our customers that ultimately ensure they are holistically prepared for all the demands or deploying zero emissions trucks today, 在未来.
Central to the successful operation of BEV transportation is charging. Having appropriate chargers on-site that are suitable to the capacity and timing needs of users is critical.
Smaller electric trucks and vehicles can get by with a Level 2 charger that is run off of 208/240 volt power – common at most commercial facilities. 然而, Level 2 charges quickly become too small for many medium-duty needs, 并且不是重型需求的选择
适用于中型和重型车主, a direct current (DC) fast charger is the highest-powered charger on the market. 直流快速充电器提供更快的充电能力, and are necessary for those trucks involved with daily operation.
TEC is a proud seller of DC fast chargers made by ABB, Heliox and Freewire. We partner with these providers to ensure our customers secure charging solutions that are specific to their needs. 为此，我们与客户合作:
- Identify tailored charging solutions and associated costs
- Plan for the installation and implementation of charging units
Hand-in-hand with charging considerations is the assurance that the associated utilities can deliver the required electrical supply to our customer locations. Electric service to these locations may require an upgrade to the electric grid, 电气设备, or other considerations necessitating the involvement of a customer’s electric utility.
TEC’s first-hand experience working through the challenges of installing chargers on our own site, as well as prior experience helping many customers prepare for battery electric deployment means we’re well-prepared to help step through these all-important details with big utility companies that often take months and can be quite cumbersome.
Every customer needs to run an efficient business to remain competitive. That means evaluating viable zero emission and battery electric solutions in light of what 路线 demand. The TEC team consults with each customer to fully understand their daily demands on equipment, and analyze their 路线 to identify which of the many electrified equipment options are best suited to them.
作为考虑过程的一部分, our team also discusses the role telematics might play in helping to keep units charged, 在路上. The use of telematics and all the resulting data from these programs helps our customers understand a multitude of details about their use of equipment, 优化他们的业务需求.
电动半挂车租赁 & 租赁解决方案
TEC Equipment 租赁 is excited to be able to help our customers needing leasing solutions find battery electric equipment solutions that fit their needs. As more and more equipment availability comes online through our major partners – Volvo, 麦克, 日野, Isuzu and 海电 – we will remain committed to offering our customers the best in electric transportation solutions through our 卡车租赁和租赁团队.
TEC Equipment is not just here for the sale of Battery Electric Vehicles. We are dedicated to being your partner throughout the lifetime of your vehicle. A big part of that is keeping our warehouses stocked with the parts that you need and continuously training our technicians as BEV technology advances.
We stock all of the parts needed for the battery electric vehicles we offer. 在一辆电动卡车上, there are fewer parts and components that make up the vehicle, 这意味着需要担心的部件更少了. A typical diesel engine consists of thousands of parts whereas a BEV engine only consists of a few parts.
TEC Equipment currently has multiple 麦克 and 沃尔沃卡车 Certified EV Dealerships. 在每一个地点, our service team is fully trained and equipped to safely perform battery electric maintenance and repairs for BEV trucks in operation. Each certified location has a dedicated BEV service bay and at least four technicians certified to work on BEVs.
组件更少, BEVs require less maintenance and fewer repairs compared to diesel-powered trucks. 需要润滑的东西更少了, 需要换的液体也少了, 在纯电动汽车中可能出错的事情更少. BEVs have similar maintenance intervals to a diesel truck to ensure the vehicle is operating smoothly and to help catch issues before they become more serious.
Heavy-duty electric trucks are now on the scene and ready to tackle local 路线. 从日间出租车到垃圾车, heavy-duty electric trucks give you the extra power needed for heavier loads and tougher jobs. These trucks are perfect for fleets and businesses with a local or regional route.
TEC Equipment is proud to continue our relationship with 麦克 and Volvo now in the heavy-duty BEV market. 凭借其创新的纯电动汽车技术和专业知识, 他们一贯提供一流的产品. TEC Equipment’s reach and 基础设施 combined with 麦克 and Volvo’s technology, sets up our customers for success in integrating battery electric vehicles into their business.
Medium-duty trucks don’t require as much power to operate compared to their heavy-duty counterpart and are well-suited for electrification. Medium-duty trucks return to their home base every day and typically do not travel long distances. 这使得收费更加容易, and the miles driven in a day match up well with the battery’s range.
中型纯电动汽车要安静得多, which means they can operate in cities at night and can significantly lower noise pollution. BEVS produce no exhaust gases which will reduce pollution in cities and highly trafficked areas. Driving BEVS has proved to be more enjoyable for drivers with fewer vibrations and less noise from the vehicle.
