*Fleets may be eligible for a free or low-cost site assessment for charging infrastructure at their facilities. To find out if eligible, fleets should indicate their interest in the application form, or contact Charlotte Argue at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line ‘FCP Site Assessment’. Fraser Basin Council can provide participants with contacts of contractors who are offering preferential rates for charging stations and installations for FCP participants. Contractors/suppliers who are able to offer fleet participant discounted rates should contact email@example.com.
Certain charging stations can work synergistically with FleetCarma EV telematic loggers, which may be of interest to fleets who participate in the EV Telematics opportunity. Read more about the smart charging capabilities on the FleetCarma site.
