BP Pulse was awarded a contract with the Purchasing Cooperative of America (PCA). The company said this is a major step in its strategy to simplify electrification for public EV fleets and accelerate the deployment of EV charging infrastructure across the nation.
BP Pulse said with this contract, it will now be able to directly offer its Omega charge management software and EVSE procurement services to public agencies that are PCA members. These agencies include local, state and federal governments; K-12 schools and higher education institutions; hospitals; law enforcement; and nonprofits. PCA members can purchase EV services directly from BP Pulse without going through their own time-consuming public bidding processes, saving time and resources.
With BP Pulse’s Omega software, EV fleets can manage energy costs and optimize performance through real-time monitoring of EV charging operations, the company said. Omega can adjust charging operations to serve a fleet owner’s individual needs, whether that’s prioritizing charging for lower costs or ensuring vehicle uptime. The software is vehicle and charger-agnostic, making it easier to manage a fleet of various vehicle types, which is often the case with public fleets.
