Workhorse Group forms alliance with Duke Energy to support faster adoption and scaling of fleet electrification
Workhorse Group Inc. and Duke Energy entered into an alliance to offer fleet electrification (eFleet) solutions to existing and future Workhorse customers, including the development of the EV infrastructure requirements for its current and future blue chip customers including both commercial and government fleets.
Potential offerings include single-point management and financing of all the Behind the Meter (BTM) infrastructure necessary to support depot-wide electrification, vehicle financing/battery management programs, solar and energy storage and other distributed energy resources.
Workhorse believes these eFleet solutions will help reduce the overall costs of fleet electrification and accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles into commercial and government fleets. By creating this alliance, Workhorse and Duke Energy will work to reduce the risk and complexity of placing significant orders for Workhorse vehicles and the scaling up of related EV infrastructure.
