One Energy Launches “Just Roll” Electric Semi-Truck Trial Program

Fleet operators invited to test new electric semi-trucks, including Daimler eCascadia

One Energy Enterprises Inc., an industrial power company, today announced it is launching a new electric semi-truck trial program known as “Just Roll.” One Energy has added the Daimler eCascadia Class 8 Battery BEV to the test fleet.

“We are seeing strong interest in electric trucks from local fleet operators but they haven’t had a way to test the vehicles – until now. With our “Just Roll” vehicle demo program, we are breaking down the barriers to widespread adoption of electric truck technology and putting top-tier semi models in the hands of fleet operators,” said Jereme Kent, CEO of One Energy. “Daimler’s eCascadia is an exciting addition to the “Just Roll” program and we welcome fleet operators to come try it out.”

The eCascadia included in the testing fleet is the tandem drive day cab model with a 438kWh battery. It is currently being charged by an ABB Terra 184 DC Fast Charger.

With the “Just Roll” program, qualified fleet operators can test out the trucks on their normal routes at no cost for 30-60 days. One Energy provides the use of its state of the art charging infrastructure, including the cost of power, and supplies the trucks so that interested fleet operators can “Just Roll.”

One Energy recently announced the energization of its 30-megawatt (MW) electric semi-truck fleet charging site in October. Located at the Findlay Megawatt Hub, it is the largest constructed electric truck charging site in the United States in terms of available charging capacity. The site power system can accommodate up to 30 MW of charging demand in its current configuration. The goal of the “Just Roll” program is to accelerate the adoption rate of electric semis in the U.S. Heartland, where the economics of electric semi-trucks, absent incentives, are more attractive than in other areas of the country.
