Pull into the parking lots at Salt River Project’s headquarters in Tempe and you will notice electric vehicle charging stations sprinkled throughout for the convenience of employees and customers.

More Level 2 (240 Volt) charging units are coming, as SRP continues to invest in its “green fleet.”

Currently, SRP has five Chevy Volts; a total of 15 green vehicles will be leased by 2014.

The electric vehicles are being rotated through the company to get a wide variety of driving distances and habits. As part of the program, an OnStar system will collect data such as drive time, state of charge, charging details, trip routes and charging locations.

In the same vein, Ford’s MyFord Mobile app will collect data for the company on employee driving and charging habits, with the goal of improving all-electric driving and charging performance.

The MyFord Mobile app also provides drivers and fleet managers with real-time battery charge status, a vehicle locator and value charging, which allows a car to automatically recharge during lower-cost, off-peak electricity rates, when there is less strain on the electrical grid.

A team of representatives from departments throughout SRP, including Facilities, Transportation Services, Load Research, Environmental Management, Policy & Compliance (EMPC) and others, will continue to review and analyze data collected on the performance of the technology.

The project will help SRP collect information on how the plug-in hybrid is used and charged.
