EV Connect, Skycharger partner on EV charging finance, infrastructure

The EV Connect platform powers Skycharger solutions for electric fleet deployment by removing upfront costs.

EV Connect, a provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging management solutions, and Skycharger, a supplier in the EV charging space, announced a Fleet-as-a-Service (FaaS) program to provide fleet operators with new financing and service options for EV charging infrastructure. In response to a call for zero-emissions goals by the Corporate Electric Vehicle Alliance and NAFA Fleet Management Association, the FaaS program offers fleet operators a simple path to acquiring, deploying, and maintaining EV charging infrastructure to meet customer requirements with no upfront costs. This comprehensive, operating expenses-based service model provides a cost-effective solution for fleet operators looking for a hassle-free option, without substantial out-of-pocket costs, for managing zero-emission fleets.

According to the companies, the FaaS program offers EV charging at a predictable monthly cost, including the cost of electricity, and represents a full-stack approach, simplifying the zero-emission fleet experience from installation to driver support. Through turnkey EV charging solutions, FaaS customers benefit from expert consulting at every phase of the electric vehicle supply equipment’s life cycle, from site planning to deployment, operations, and management. Skycharger customers also benefit from the EV Connect Shield program, which provides central management of charging station operations and maintenance, including station hardware, software and networking, technical field service, as well as parts sourcing and replacement. Through the program, customers receive low-risk, flexible options and reasonable monthly expenditures while enjoying the interoperability, reliability, and support, the companies say.

FaaS is currently available for fleet customers of all sizes and includes Level 2 and fast-charging equipment from EV Connect partners BTC, EvoCharge, PowerCharge, Tritium, Zerova and others.
