Solar company announces California truck, bus charging service

Renewable Properties, a developer and investor in small-scale utility and community solar projects, has launched a new electric vehicle (EV) fleet charging service for medium- and heavy-duty truck and bus fleets.

The company states the service will leverage the company’s extensive community solar development, land acquisition, and electrical infrastructure expertise to provide a turnkey charging solution for companies transitioning their truck fleets from fossil fuels to electric power.

Renewable Properties has selected global engineering and construction company Black & Veatch to design the first EV charging station on land that Renewable Properties recently acquired in Vacaville, California, a Bay Area transportation and distribution hub for major retail brands. This first station will act as a model for deploying more private charging depots for medium and heavy-duty electric truck and bus fleets on the West Coast, the company says.

Charging at Renewable Properties’ depots will be offered via a charging-as-a-service agreement similar to a power purchase agreement (PPA), with no upfront costs to fleet owners and operators. Renewable Properties will site, build, own, operate and maintain the gated depots, with customers paying only for the kilowatt-hours used to charge their EVs, the company adds.

The charging depots will feature reserved electrical capacity, secure yards, vehicle storage and EV chargers that will be compatible with most EV truck brands.

“The already-growing need for EV fleet charging is now more urgent with California’s new requirements for fleet electrification,” says Aaron Halimi, founder and CEO of Renewable Properties. “With our simple, straightforward charging-as-a-service solution, our work with Black & Veatch, plus our deep experience in distributed electrical infrastructure development and land acquisition, Renewable Properties is uniquely positioned to relieve fleet owners of the burden of navigating the complex implementation of EV charging infrastructure.”
