Motiv completing first CEC grant of $1.3M with the California Energy Commission (CEC)
Jim Castelaz, CEO, and 3 others met with the CEC employees who have been administering this grant for the Final Review Meeting at the CEC headquarters in Sacramento, CA on July 9, 2012. This grant along with matching funds from Motiv resulted in the demo 20-passenger all-electric shuttle bus for Bauer's Transportation with the Motiv electric Powertrain Control System (ePCS). This bus was shown at the Work Truck Show 2012 at Indianapolis, IN in early March. This bus is now being used to log monitoring data for the operation of the ePCS and has already logged more than a thousand miles. We expect the CEC project to be completed in August, at which time the shuttle will continue operation for Bauer's Transportation as the Bay Area's premier all-electric shuttle bus.
