Postal vehicles are perfect candidates for electric vehicles: They generally travel less than 40 miles a day, make multiple stops, travel at slow speeds, and return every evening to the local post office’s central parking facility.

If a bill currently under consideration in the US House of Representatives passes, the U.S. Postal Service will be equipped with at least 20,000 EVs and will facilitate the Postal Service fleet’s storing of electricity for the nation’s power grid. V2G (vehicle-to-grid) technology will allow new and converted electric postal vehicles to supply power to the grid.
