School Bus Fleet Electrification

Simplify your school’s transition to an electric school bus fleet with our turnkey process combined with dependable and affordable electric buses on your terms and budget.

What Is School Bus Fleet Electrification?

Zero-Emissions School Transportation

Electric school buses offer huge health and education benefits to students, schools, and the community. Transitioning to an electric school bus fleet improves air quality, reduces emissions and noise pollution, cuts costs, and provides students with a more comfortable service. But building an electric school bus fleet is a complicated process, and most schools need a partner.

As one of the world’s largest renewable energy companies, Enel North America can work with your school to understand your unique transportation requirements and budget constraints, then define electrification options based on your school’s needs. Our turnkey solutions remove the high up-front cost of electrification and simplify the transition to an electric school bus fleet.
