Building on ENGIE's success enabling broad adoption of electrified transportation throughout the world, ENGIE North America, through its various subsidiaries and affiliates, announced today new K-12 fleet and transit agency customers: El Monte Union High School District (UHSD), Grossmont Union HSD and Victor Valley Transit Authority.
"Zero-emission buses are the future of American public transportation," said Stefaan Sercu, Chief Energy Solutions Officer, Americas at ENGIE. "In fact, soon, electrification will be one of the best options. That's good news for communities, because ultimately it will significantly reduce both the cost and environmental impact of transportation."
There are environmental and economic benefits to move to zero-emission buses, but the planning and implementation processes can be overwhelming for agency and district transportation leaders. That is why ENGIE North America is offering a comprehensive eMobility solution to accelerate electrification projects and optimize project outcomes.
"Just planning for a transition to an electric fleet is a daunting task when you think of all the variables involved," said Lindsey Danner, Energy Manager at Grossmont Union HSD. "ENGIE North America is helping us put a plan together we can afford – covering everything from bus infrastructure and technology to funding sources. They turned a challenge into a real opportunity for our district."
