On Wednesday, July 27, 2022, GNHCCC held a web meeting with Brendan Sharkey of ACES Up and Daisy Solutions to learn about a peer-to-peer school bus electrification support offered by Area Cooperative Educational Services (ACES), the regional education service center for 25 school districts in south central Connecticut.  ACES UP is rolling out a network of dedicated EV chargers, and provides grant application, design & installation, and solar & storage solutions for school districts across Connecticut to support the statewide deployment of electric school bus transportation.

ACES unveiled the first full-size electric school bus in use in Connecticut, a 71 passenger Bluebird Electric Vision bus, in October of 2021, partially funded by a $213,750 State of Connecticut DERA grant.  See NBC CT coverage of the rollout and watch an interview with ACES’ Deputy Executive Director, Timothy Howes and Daisy Solutions’ Brendan Sharkey.

A recording of the one hour meeting is the second video below and you may also download a copy of the slides.  The first video is a short promotional piece.
