A report by the Corporate Electric Vehicle Alliance says electric utilities should work to provide operators of electric vehicle fleets with a range of rate options, including a new rate class.

Utilities could benefit from big corporate and municipal electric fleets because the fleets offer them a chance to use smart technologies and managed charging to shift their loads to off-peak times, the report says.

The report was commissioned by Ceres, a sustainable investing-advocate and member of the Corporate Electric Vehicle Alliance, and the California Trucking Association. Amazon, which recently ordered 100,000 electric delivery vans and took a $440 million stake in the company that will make them, funded the report.
