Dominion electric school bus initiative aims for 100% electric fleet in Virginia territory by 2030
from Education DIVE
Dominion's bus replacement program looks like an easy win for school districts, but the utility says benefits will extend further by helping manage the electric grid and incorporating renewable energy. "Once phase 2 is fully implemented, the buses' batteries could provide enough energy to power more than 10,000 homes," Dominion said in a statement. The buses will serve as a grid resource by storing wind and solar energy, and then injecting energy onto the grid during peak demand when the buses are not needed for transportation.
