“Electrifying our fleet aligns with Rexel’s Sustainable Development Strategy, including the goal of reducing the carbon footprint of our operations,” said Christopher Monoson, President and General Manager of Rexel Energy Solutions. “There are numerous financial, operational and environmental benefits, including resilience to fuel price fluctuations, reduced logistics and maintenance costs, enhanced monitoring capabilities, and much more. We will continue to educate our partners in the industry on the benefits of shifting to EV fleets in support of a more sustainable marketplace.”
RES has already incorporated a Chevy Bolt into its fleet and has delivery vehicles on order. Their plan is to have their first delivery vehicles in service by Q2 2022 and to continue to transition to EVs, including electric vans and trucks, in 2022 and beyond to reach their goal to be 100% electric before 2030.
