Levo and Ecolution Power Team Up with Plans to Fund Electric Buses and Charging Stations Powered by Kinetic Energy
Ecolution Power Company (Ecolution), a clean energy technology company, has signed an LOI to collaborate with Levo Mobility LLC (Levo) to help create the first smart city to achieve net-zero carbon emissions. Ecolution plans to deploy its patented Module Active Response System (MARS) proof-of-concept in Greenville, SC, followed by a roll-out of its technology in Minnesota for 2022.
Ecolution’s MARS technology harvests kinetic energy from moving train cars and truck trailers, generating affordable clean electricity which is downloaded into a micro-grid at the train station, at buildings in the city, or placed directly into the central electric grid. This mobilized kinetic energy would also be sourced to charge electric school buses. There are approximately 5,000 school buses and 1,000 municipal and mass transit buses in the Minneapolis-St. Paul greater area which could transition to zero emission electric in the future.
Through a dedicated project joint venture which may be funded by Levo, Ecolution plans to supply St. Paul and the Twin Cities area in Minnesota with electric vehicles and electric vehicle charging stations powered by its rail-to-grid technology.
“Harnessing the power of clean energy is critical to building a sustainable future for our city,” said Mayor Melvin Carter. “As we continue this vital work, we look forward to the opportunity to welcome Ecolution into our community.”
