Navistar and In-Charge Energy, a turnkey charging solution for commercial fleets, announced their partnership can now power electric vehicle fleet customers with carbon neutral electricity through their EV charging infrastructure.

Santa Monica, Calif.-based In-Charge Energy’s fleet-focused In-Control software platform automates the process of collecting EV charging energy information and with a single click calculates the carbon impact of fueling.

The company noted it has entered into contracts for Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) to convert energy consumed by fleets to 100% renewable sources.

In California, Oregon and British Columbia, most companies can earn Low Carbon Fuel Standard credits when they charge their vehicles. The partnership of Lisle, Ill.-based Navistar and In-Charge allows fleet managers to focus on managing their fleets while In-Control manages the LCFS credit generation and credits on energy markets for cash.

In other parts of the U.S. and Canada, In-Charge customers have the option to buy In-Charge Carbon-Free Credits, which offset a fleet’s carbon emissions. With these credits, In-Charge and Navistar customers can purchase verified clean, renewable energy to reduce the environmental impact of their electricity use for EV charging, enabling them to go completely carbon neutral, according to the companies. — Transport Topics
