The second presentation is will Dominion Energy Virginia launch of a nationally-leading program to support Virginia school districts’ transition of their school bus fleet from diesel to electric, which will improve air quality and the health of children in our communities. We’re also exploring battery storage capabilities, and the batteries on the school buses will enable us to continue to study their use while enhancing reliability on our electric grid. The first 16 localities have been selected to help kick off the program by purchasing electric buses at the same price as diesel. 50 buses will roll out this year and, with legislative approval, we hope to enable an additional 1,500 to be added over the next 5 years.
