MOEV, Gardena Transit to Enable Electrification of Fleets
Artificial Intelligence software will manage battery electric bus power
MOEV is implementing a system that automatically manages the recharging of battery electric buses at the City of Gardena’s GTrans to minimize the electric bill, improve operational efficiency, reduce operator and driver stress, and extend the buses’ battery life.
The system is backed by a $3.3 million grant from the California Energy Commission (CEC).
Additionally, the system will maximize the use of energy from solar panels at the transit agency and helps improve grid resilience.
“GTrans is excited to work with MOEV as we plan to convert our entire 58-bus fleet to zero-emission buses by 2035,” said Ernie Crespo, MOEV’s partner and GTrans’ director of transportation. “We look forward to integrating this smart technology into our system and are thankful for this investment by the CEC.”
