On Wednesday, July 27, 2022, Greater New Haven Clean Cities Coalition held a web meeting with Brendan Sharkey of ACES Up and Daisy Solutions to learn about a peer-to-peer school bus electrification support offered by Area Cooperative Educational Services (ACES), the regional education service center for 25 school districts in south central Connecticut. 

ACES UP is rolling out a network of dedicated EV chargers and provides grant application, design & installation and solar & storage solutions for school districts across Connecticut to support the statewide deployment of electric school bus transportation.

ACES unveiled the first full-size electric school bus in use in Connecticut, a 71-passenger Bluebird Electric Vision bus, in October of 2021, partially funded by a $213,750 State of Connecticut DERA grant
