BYD and AMPLY Power announced a preferred partnership that will allow fleet operators such as transit agencies, shuttle bus operators, universities, school districts, and municipalities to more rapidly migrate to electric vehicles through joint products and services encompassing vehicles and infrastructure.

In a 2018 survey by Greenbiz, fleet operators cited high cost and complex infrastructure as main deterrents in expanding their electric truck and bus pilots to full deployment. The two companies aim to answer these challenges by providing bundled, affordable solutions and charging infrastructure that guarantees uptime.

AMPLY provides comprehensive end-to-end services to fleet operators, including operational upgrades and utility interconnections, optimal charging strategy-based on drive cycle and duty cycle, debt financing or grant funding for reducing capital expenditures, and implementing resiliency plans where needed. The company assumes the full financial responsibility of utility account and provides the fleet with flat usage rates. AMPLY also performs onsite operations and maintenance services, and invests in technology upgrades as the needs of the fleet evolve.

The companies have been working with joint customers since early 2019. The partnership formalizes the relationship as the two companies begin to deploy several electric bus customer projects, with the earliest expected to launch this year.
