Electric utility companies can support fleet electrification through a variety of measures, including incentive programs, technical assistance, and sometimes even by installing charging station infrastructure. The power load from electric vehicle (EV) charging stations is significant in many cases, and electrical service upgrades might be necessary. This session will talk about how to unlock utility support and make sure distribution companies are prepared to help you transition to EVs.

- Recognize how coordination with utility companies is critical to successful ZEM implementation; and
- Identify options for ZEM implementation with utility companies, including grants and funding opportunities, charging as a services, charging infrastructure development, etc.
