As school districts and pupil transportation contractors move toward electrification, an increasing number of departments are adopting “vehicle-to-grid” (V2G) technology. It enables energy to be pushed back to the power grid from the battery of an electric vehicle (EV) to help supply energy during peak demand times. It can help reduce the load on the power grid. With V2G technology, a battery can be charged and discharged based on different signals.
