School District Welcomes Groundbreaking Vehicle-to-Grid School Buses
The Cajon Valley Union School District is getting a fleet of first-of-their-kind electric school buses that can help power the state’s grid. The technology was developed by Nuuve and Lion Electric in partnership with San Diego Gas & Electric.
The buses are part of what Nuuve calls vehicle-to-grid technology or V2G for short.
“These buses are like storage on wheels,” Chief Executive Gregory Poilasne told the Los Angeles Times.
The vehicle batteries charge during daylight hours and then send emission-free energy back to the grid.
This is the first time a V2G project has been used in the U.S. — but it won’t be the last. The technology is slated for use by the Ramona Unified School District and the San Diego Unified School District.
