Vehicle electrification solutions firm XL Fleet has deployed EV charging stations across Texas, Oklahoma and Illinois for Apex Clean Energy, which develops and operates wind and solar power facilities in North America.

The firm installed dual-port, level 2 chargers at six wind farm facilities for the ten Ford F-series pickups which Apex Clean Energy had deployed earlier this year. The pickups are equipped with XL Fleet plug-in hybrid electric drive systems. The stations will also prepare the facilities for additional EV investment.

“Apex continues to invest heavily in our commitment to sustainability and driving the clean energy economy, and working with XL Fleet as our electrification partner has enabled us to move forward quickly on our EV strategy,” said Mark Goodwin, President and CEO of Apex Clean Energy.

XL Fleet CEO Eric Tech added, “XL Fleet is committed to helping Apex and other sustainability-minded companies to accelerate their path to electrification, even in rural areas where access to EVs has been extremely limited. This is a great example of how XL Fleet is leveraging our experience and our solution suite to help customers remove barriers to electrification, gain access to charging infrastructure and move forward on achieving their comprehensive sustainability goals.”

The installation project was managed by the World Energy Efficiency Services team, which joined the XL Grid business in May.
