Duke Energy has pledged to convert a majority of its current 10,000-vehicle fleet to electric or another zero-carbon alternative in 10 years.
More specifically, Duke Energy’s pledge is to convert 100% of its nearly 4,000 light-duty vehicles to electric and 50% of its approximately 6,000 combined fleet of medium-duty, heavy-duty and off-road vehicles to EVs, plug-in hybrids, or other zero-carbon alternatives as more of these options become available.
With approximately 600 electric vehicles (EVs) already in its fleet, the utility said it will continue to pursue electrification as more electric vehicle options become available.
Other efforts from Duke Energy in the clean energy space include the installation of 500 charging stations, which have been used more than 13,000 times.
Duke Energy is also on track to install more than 200 workplace chargers for employees by the end of 2020. The company currently offers a rebate of $3,000 to employees who purchase an EV and $1,500 to employees who choose to lease an EV.
