Truck maker Paccar Inc. announced a collaboration with Faith Technologies and Schneider Electric to provide charging infrastructure for customers who purchase battery-electric models from Kenworth Truck Co. and Peterbilt Motors Co. in the United States and Canada.

Kenworth and Peterbilt have recently begun taking customer orders for production model Kenworth K270E and the Peterbilt Model 220EV medium-duty battery electric trucks, with additional production models to be introduced in the coming months.

Truck customers will be able to order electric chargers from Paccar Parts. Paccar Financial will provide flexible financing options for infrastructure and charging systems. PacLease will bundle the cost of charging systems within full service lease offerings to customers. The partnership will help customers navigate the numerous financial incentives available from a variety of government agencies in the United States and Canada, according to Bellevue, Wash.-based Paccar.

Schneider Electric provides electrical infrastructure, energy-as-a-service, and services and software solutions for efficiency and sustainability under the Square D, APC and Aveva brands, among others.

Faith Technologies brings nearly 50 years of experience to perform the electrical and engineering design work and maintain the equipment after sale. — Transport Topics
