Electric-Powered Buses With High Battery Capacity Rolled Out at Cajon Valley Union School District

El Cajon Valley Union School District’s fleet is the first V2G project to come online in the U.S. The eight electric-powered school buses can send electricity back to California’s grid and is part of a pilot project in collaboration with Nuvve, a local San Diego company, and San Diego Gas & Electric. The first-of-its-kind technology has a battery capacity of up to 210 kilowatt-hours – five times more than a typical electric car.
The bi-directional technology allows electric vehicle batteries that charge during the day to then discharge emissions-free energy back to the electric grid when it is needed the most.
