Fleets for the Future (F4F) would like to formally announce our partnership with National Joint Powers Alliance® (NJPA). Through this partnership, F4F and NJPA are coordinating a national procurement initiative to increase the deployment of alternative-fuel vehicles (AFVs) and related infrastructure across the country.
 
This collaboration is designed to help cities, counties, and regions with the large upfront costs that are associated with AFVs. Public fleet managers can use this opportunity to purchase and lease AFVs at discounted rates through NJPA’s extensive list of competitively awarded contracts. Participants can choose from a variety of battery electric vehicles, plug-in hybrid vehicles, natural gas vehicles, and propane autogas vehicles available with NJPA to build their fleets.
 
“NJPA is excited to join Fleets for the Future in expanding and promoting our alternative fuel vehicle and infrastructure options and providing solutions to public entities in all 50 states,” said Tom Perttula, NJPA’s Manager of Contract Administration.
 
In addition to vehicles, F4F has assisted NJPA in adding five new vendors to provide electric vehicle supply equipment and related services, including ChargePoint, LilyPad EV, Siemens, AeroVironment, and Greenlots. NJPA will continue to add more opportunities as the partnership progresses.
 
Joining NJPA is free and easy online and will grant your organization access to exclusive member pricing and vehicle solutions. By joining today, you can ensure your fleet is ready to purchase AFVs and related infrastructure as new opportunities and vendors continue to join NJPA through the Fleets for the Future effort. These opportunities are open to public entities nationwide.
