GreenPower Motor Company Inc. announced via Green Commuter that two EV Stars will be deployed in Los Angeles County in the Basset and Avocado Heights neighborhoods under a California Energy Commission Grant.
Green Commuter is providing the vehicles for mobility services such as microtransit and vanpooling along with the charging infrastructure for the Basset Avocado Advanced Energy Community (BAAEC) project. The project, led by California-based nonprofit The Energy Coalition, will provide locally produced renewable electricity to 235 households through a community solar tariff structure, provide 50 homes with no-cost solar and residential battery storage, and develop an electric vehicle (EV) mobility service, EV charging infrastructure, and a community carbon management system.
GreenPower’s EV Star is the only bus in its class that comes with a standard J1772 level 2 and CCS DC fast combo charge system, allowing for optimal flexibility in route planning for any duty cycle. To date, Green Commuter has taken delivery of over 70 EV Stars.
