Dominion Energy Moves Forward with Electric School Bus Program - Jan 16, 2020

Congratulations to Dominion Energy and our colleagues in the #Arlington, #Alexandria, #Fairfax and #PrinceWilliam School Districts on receiving the first delivery of electric schools buses in the region. Great news for #sustainability, #environment and #health. More than 50% of the region's greenhouse gases come from mobile and transportation sources. And, when the buses are not in use they can be used as batteries to put energy back into grid. Northern Virginia is the Innovation Region and it is great to see this innovative partnership. https://news.dominionenergy.com/2020-01-16-Dominion-Energy-Moves-Forward-with-Electric-School-Bus-Program

Phase one will bring 50 electric school buses to 16 localities within Dominion Energy's Virginia service area by the end of 2020.
