New York State Funding UPS Switchover To Electric Trucks

New York State Funding UPS Switchover To Electric Trucks

NYSERDA will provide $500,000 in funding. The money will be used to pay for the development of an electric drivetrain provided by Unique Electric Solutions and to begin the conversion process. At the heart of the drivetrain is a 225 kW switched reluctance motor (SRM) with a high-voltage backbone optimized for the duty cycle of UPS delivery trucks. It says its motors are simpler, cheaper, and better suited to use in electric vehicles than conventional induction motors. In addition, they do not use the rare earth elements found in permanent magnet motors. The company claims is propulsion system provides more miles per battery charge, reduced charging times, and up to 20% greater efficiency.
