Transit Microgrid Feasibility Study

The Fresno County Rural Transit Agency (FCRTA) provides public transit service in rural areas within Fresno County. FCRTA is embarking on an innovative project to create transit microgrids and community resiliency hubs to expand transportation access, improve air quality, and support local communities

WHAT IS A MICRO GRID?

Microgrids are small, independent power systems that use sustainable energy (like solar or wind) to power everything from electric buses to cell phones.

Improve air quality

Create a more resilient Fresno County!

GET INVOLVED!

The outcomes of this project will impact our entire community. Because of that, every resident of Fresno County is a key partner!

We will be holding community workshops and conducting surveys throughout 2022. Details will be available on this website www.ruraltransit.org and will be publicized locally.
