San Diego Electric School Bus Puts Electricity Into The Grid

Update: Nuvve Holding Corp. is a global energy infrastructure management company headquartered in San Diego, CA which partnered directly with San Diego Gas and Electric and Cajon Valley Union School District to successfully deploy the first full vehicle-to-grid (V2G) project in the nation, following the U.S. Department of Energy’s vehicle-to-everything (V2X) initiative announced in April. Through this program, the district’s fleet of eight electric school buses enabled with Nuvve’s V2G technology will now qualify to participate in SDG&E’s new Emergency Load Reduction Program (ELRP), which pays business customers $2/kWh if they’re able to export energy to the grid or reduce energy use during grid emergencies. In addition to Cajon Valley, Nuvve and SDG&E are also working with other Southern California school districts including, San Diego Unified and Ramona Unified School Districts, on similar V2G projects.
