This webinar will explore how K-12 school districts can implement sustainable electric transportation infrastructure with innovative financing and lower the total cost of ownership.
Today’s schools must become leaders in sustainability for the benefit of the students, community, and environment. Electrifying the school bus fleet is a clean and affordable move in the right direction.
For many districts, the key challenges of such an initiative are finding the upfront capital to fund it and ensuring that ongoing operations over time are as cost-effective as possible. Districts can address both challenges through “value stacking” — stacking grants and incentives to reduce upfront costs and stacking complementary energy technologies for long-term cost savings.
ENGIE North America has a long history of supporting schools with a range of sustainable energy solutions, including eMobility. ENGIE partners with preferred energy storage provider, Stem, to support school districts’ transition to electric buses. Together, ENGIE and Stem will share:
- How to fund school bus fleet electrification with a variety of grants and incentives, including new opportunities presented in the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA)
- How onsite solar, energy storage, and smart chargers work together to consistently provide clean and affordable energy
- Examples of school districts that are currently leveraging these technologies to reduce costs and provide more sustainable transportation for their students and communities
