New York school uses electric buses as batteries on wheels
from The Driven
A primary school in New York is using an electric bus to offer kids a pollution-free lift to and from school as part of a trial that will also see it feed energy back into the grid during hot summer months. Equipped with bidirectional charging capabilities (much like Nissan's latest Leaf), the electric bus made by Lion Electric Co is in effect a "battery on wheels." It is one of five being used across the state of New York as part of electric company Con Edison's pilot to support the grid during hot months when children are not at school.
