Partnering with the Gilroy Unified School District, Breathe California will soon be unveiling a formerly diesel-fueled school bus converted to a fully electric, solar-recharged vehicle.
On May 27, School officials in Gilroy will soon unveil what’s being described as a “first-of-its-kind, full-sized electric school bus converted from diesel.”
Breathe California and the Gilroy Unified School District are scheduled to cut the ribbon on its solar array and showcase the bus. A press release from Breathe California encouraged the media to “learn how any school district can have zero-emission clean, safe buses and save money at the same time.”
The project is being supported by a grant through the Health Trust.

The event will be held at the district’s transportation department, 8067 Swanston Lane. In addition to the ribbon-cutting, there will be bus rides, solar demonstrations and the chance to see the bus up close. For more information, contact Patricia Tind at [email protected] or visit
