Salt Spring Community Energy sent board director Kjell Liem to the Association Of School Transportation Services of BC (ASTSBC) 54th Annual Conference to learn more about the plans for Electric Vehicle School Bus adoption and what that means for School District 64.
The Clean BC Transportation team at the Ministry of Energy was in attendance and the consulting economist definitely had the province’s bus fleet on his radar to help meet the BC’s goal of a 60% emissions reduction from transportation by 2030. Also in attendance was a LION C, a Canadian-made electric school bus that was on its way to Sacramento, California.
Jae Mather, Executive Director of Clean Energy BC, gave an excellent talk at the event to celebrate our launch as a society at GISS on November 8th, 2019. Many thanks to Bill Warriner at Salt Spring Live for shooting and sharing the video of the talk.
