It will be like riding to school in a giant yellow Tesla.
The short version:
- Three school districts in Virginia will have 50 electric school buses on the road by the end of 2020.
- This is the first stage of a plan to put 1,000 school buses on the road by 2025.
- These aren’t the first electric school buses to be used, but it is the largest project.
- Because of the large number of batteries, the buses will also serve as energy storage for emergency situations.
I love this. Kids will get used to electric transportation at a young age and anything else will seem old to them. It will be interesting to see how the state plans to use the energy storage as well.
