Getting back to the question of ev school buses, I recently listened to a podcast talking about the benefits and how to de-risk the transition and lower the upfront and overall costs to school districts with a full service lease that includes all the infrastructure needed to go from nothing to EV quickly. Lots of interesting points in there, one big one was grid integration where the buses can act as grid batteries when they are not being used which for a typical school bus is a good amount of the time.

That’s an interesting idea, and since it’s a public service, I could get behind it.
