In response to California's Advanced Clean Fleets (ACF) Regulation, Renewable Properties has introduced a practical solution for school transportation officials. The company's turnkey electric vehicle (EV) charging service aims to simplify the transition to electric buses, aligning with regulatory demands.

California businesses must comply with the state’s Advanced Clean Fleets (ACF) Regulation, which went into effect on Jan. 1. ACF prescribes a phased-in transition to EV fleets, requiring any fleet operator with revenue greater than $50 million, or that controls more than 50 trucks, to begin electrifying their fleets, including school transportation bus fleets.

“The already-growing need for EV fleet charging is now more urgent with California’s new requirements for fleet electrification,” said Aaron Halimi, founder and CEO of Renewable Properties, in a news release. “With our simple, straightforward charging-as-a-service solution, our work with Black & Veatch, plus our deep experience in distributed electrical infrastructure development and land acquisition, Renewable Properties is uniquely positioned to relieve fleet owners of the burden of navigating the complex implementation of EV charging infrastructure.”

Renewable Properties, known for its expertise in solar projects, is now extending its services to school districts, presenting a comprehensive solution for the electrification of bus fleets. Here are the key takeaways:

Streamlined Transition with Turnkey EV Charging Solution

Renewable Properties aims to ease the burden on school transportation officials by offering a turnkey EV charging solution. The service encompasses every aspect, from site construction to daily operation and maintenance. This approach allows districts to focus on the transition to electric buses without the complexities of infrastructure management.

Charging-as-a-Service Model with Financial Ease

Understanding the financial constraints faced by school districts, Renewable Properties adopts a charging-as-a-service model. This means no upfront costs for the construction and maintenance of EV charging infrastructure. The company will own, operate, and maintain the charging depots, allowing school districts to pay solely for the kilowatt-hours used to charge their electric buses, providing a financially efficient solution.

Regulatory Alignment for Compliance

Renewable Properties' turnkey solution aligns with California's Advanced Clean Fleets (ACF) Regulation, providing a practical and compliant avenue for school districts. With specific benchmarks set for fleet electrification, the company's service, in partnership with global engineering firm Black & Veatch, strives to ensure that school transportation officials can seamlessly meet regulatory requirements.
