Batteries and charging
Operators would prefer to make as few changes as possible to the existing infrastructure in the transition from diesel to electric buses. We fully support this. Right from its creation in 2010 Ebusco has been a strong promoter of depot charging.
Our batteries are of such high quality that daytime top-up opportunity charging should not be necessary.
Overnight charging in depots is sufficient, and this also places less demand on the grid in daytime. Needless to say this makes a big difference in costs and it is also better for the battery, as it extends its useful life. Furthermore there is no need to install large charging posts in cities.
