    Solutions Used: ChargePilot®, charging hardware, consulting

In October 2020, The Mobility House completed the deployment of ChargePilot® with ABB HVC-150C depot chargers to provide the charging, energy and load management for battery electric buses owned by the St. Louis Area Transit System. At the time, this project was one of the biggest battery electric bus charging infrastructure deployments in the US. Working for New Flyer of America, Inc. (New Flyer), the 4.35MW charging project has its 20 150kW and three 450kW chargers now operating intelligently with the use of the charging and energy management system, ChargePilot®.

"With over 10 percent of the European bus market intelligently controlled by our technology, we are bringing a wealth of best practices and lessons learned in electric fleet charging management to this landmark project in St. Louis."
