Lightning Systems, a Colorado-based developer of zero-emission drivetrains, has introduced “Lightning On Tap” charging solutions, an offering of AC and DC fast-charge stations.
Lightning’s lineup of new chargers includes both AC and DC fast-charge options, ranging from 7.2 kW AC chargers to 100 kW DC chargers.
“With more fleet operators making the switch to electric trucks and buses, planning and installing charging systems has brought a whole new set of challenges for our customers. We can now help overcome that challenge by delivering a full suite of charging hardware and software options,” says Tim Reeser, Lightning’s CEO. “We know firsthand that fleets need timely and specific help with charging solutions for their commercial vehicles.”
Lightning says it has formed partnerships with software and energy management companies such as The Mobility House, a full-service charging management company.
“The Mobility House offers everything from in-depth planning to installation to management services,” notes Brandon McNeil, director of operations at Lightning. “These services assist our customers in painlessly deploying EV charging solutions while also optimizing their experience in day-to-day operation.”
The company notes that some jurisdictions, such as California and Colorado, offer grants or other incentives that may partially or fully cover the cost of charging solutions. In addition, certain electric utility companies have subsidy programs.
