Brookville Smart Energy Bus Depot

The largest fleet of electric school buses in the US has entered service in Maryland. The fleet of 86 vehicles will be 70 charged at a solar-powered, micro-grid site.

The Brookville Smart Energy Bus Depot's solar-powered local grid has a charging capacity of 4.14 megawatts. A bus fleet that typically consumes the same amount of power can be adequately served in this way. Experts estimate that using locally generated energy can reduce the bus fleet's emissions by 62 percent over its lifetime.
