Dominion Energy selects Thomas Built Jouley for electric school bus initiative


Dominion Energy has selected Thomas Built Buses (TBB) as the
provider of 50 electric school buses, which will make up the initial phase of
Dominion’s electric school bus replacement program in Virginia. According to TBB,
this program represents the largest deployment of electric school buses in the US
to date.

TBB’s Saf-T-Liner C2 Jouley is powered by Proterra technology. It features
a 220 kWh battery pack, a two-speed transmission and a quoted range of up to
134 miles. It charges in roughly three hours via the Proterra 60 kWh DC fast
charging system, and can supply power back to the grid using vehicle-to-grid
(V2G) technology.

Dominion plans to partner with local Virginia school
districts to replace diesel buses with electric in phases, adding 200 per year
for the next 5 years.
