Cleaner charging solution for Electric Buses
Ninety-five percent of school buses, the nation’s largest transportation network, still run on diesel, which is especially harmful to young children. e-Boost runs on propane, a clean fuel under the Clean Air Act, as well as utilize renewable propane, already available in states with stricter low-carbon standards. e-Boost expedites the transition to electric by overcoming long lead times and construction typical of grid tied charging systems. These mobile units provide operators on leased properties or on year-to-year contracts with the flexibility needed. Their mobility is useful for sporting and school events, whose mileage may be outside of an electric bus' range, which can fluctuate in cold weather.
