Ford Pro™, Ford’s commercial division, has introduced the Ford Pro™ Smart Charging Bundle to assist Massachusetts businesses in incorporating electric vehicles into their fleet operations. This initiative aims to reduce both upfront and ongoing charging costs.

Key Highlights:

  • Program Offering: Free Ford Pro™ 48-amp or 80-amp chargers for subscribers of Ford Pro™ Charging software enrolled in the Massachusetts Clean Peak Energy Standard (CPS).
  • Purpose: Lower emissions and costs during peak electricity demand periods.
  • Impact: Supports the shift to clean energy and helps Massachusetts achieve net zero emissions by 2050.
  • Ford Pro™ Support: Over 1,000 commercial worksite depots with tailored EV consulting and integrated charging solutions.
  • Cost Savings: Estimated 48% lower operating costs for EV fleets, with potential savings of hundreds of dollars per vehicle annually by scheduling charging during off-peak hours.

The Ford Pro™ Smart Charging Bundle provides free Ford Pro™ 48-amp chargers for home or worksite use, and 80-amp chargers for worksite use, to Ford Pro™ Charging software subscribers enrolled in the Clean Peak Energy Standard (CPS). Established by the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources in 2020, the CPS is designed to reduce emissions and costs during peak electricity demand by promoting clean energy technologies.

“Clean energy technologies like energy storage and demand response resources, when used during peak electricity demand, lower the likelihood that we need to call on expensive fossil fuels,” said Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources Commissioner, Elizabeth Mahony. “Through its Clean Peak Energy Standard, DOER believes these technologies can reduce costs for ratepayers, lower Massachusetts’ emissions, and create a more resilient electric grid. Ford Pro’s Smart Charging Bundle is now among the tools to help Massachusetts shift to a clean energy portfolio and achieve net zero emissions in 2050.”

Ford Pro™ Charging supports over 1,000 commercial worksite depots that power fleet EVs. Committed to simplifying the electric transition for businesses, Ford Pro™ offers tailored EV consulting and a comprehensive portfolio of integrated charging hardware and software solutions. Their team designs, implements, and operates solutions for both Ford and other brand vehicles, ensuring fleet vehicles are charged optimally and ready for work.

Ford Pro™ Charging software monitors millions of data points daily, continually enhancing the EV charging experience for commercial customers. This empowers businesses to customize and manage their EV and charger performance, resulting in estimated 48% lower operating costs for EV fleets. Businesses charging Ford electric vehicles can save hundreds of dollars per vehicle annually by leveraging smart charging software to schedule charging during off-peak hours. By utilizing demand response to curtail EV charging during peak times, businesses can manage energy loads, resulting in cost savings and a cleaner power grid.

“Our team is focused on easing the transition to electric for business and government customers,” said Ted Cannis, Ford Pro CEO. “Through this program, Ford Pro customers essentially get their own virtual ‘charging manager,’ as we will do the heavy lifting such as providing no-cost charging hardware, managing the charging schedule, avoiding peak rates, and ensuring business EVs are powered up appropriately to get work done.”
