XL Fleet, a manufacturer of vehicle electrification solutions for commercial and municipal fleets, has announced it has completed installation on a series of charging station deployments for Apex Clean Energy, a clean energy company that develops, constructs, and operates utility-scale wind and solar power facilities throughout North America.
The deployment includes 12 dual-port, Level 2 chargers that were installed at six different wind farm facilities across Texas, Oklahoma, and Illinois. The charging infrastructure has been added to power ten Ford F-series pickups equipped with XL Fleet plug-in hybrid electric drive systems that Apex deployed in its service fleet earlier this year. In addition, the stations are intended to prepare the facilities for additional EV investments moving forward as Apex continues to invest in meeting its sustainability goals through vehicle electrification.
Installation was managed by the World Energy Efficiency Services team that joined the XL Grid business as a wholly owned subsidiary of XL Fleet in May, extending the company’s electrification solutions to include a comprehensive and integrated suite of hybrid electric drivetrains, charging infrastructure, and energy efficiency consulting and project management services.
