As part of a federal rebate program incentivizing local school districts to invest in greener school transportation, like electric school buses, federal agencies are hosting a series of free webinars on the topic. The next in the series is on June 22 and will focus on electric utilities and technical assistance for school buses.
On June 22 at 1 p.m., the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Joint Office of Energy and Transportation are hosting a free webinar on clean school bus infrastructure as part of an ongoing series related to cleaner infrastructure for school districts.
The webinar is scheduled ahead of the upcoming August 19, 2022 deadline to apply for $500 million in federal rebates available via 2022 Clean School Bus Rebates. It will focus on the following topics relevant to clean school bus infrastructure:
- EV charging infrastructure, including assessing school district transportation needs, working with electric utilities, utility rate structures, and selecting a charger;
- Infrastructure considerations for propane and compressed natural gas (CNG) school buses; and
- How to access clean school bus technical assistance, including through the Department of Energy’s Clean Cities Coalition Network and the Joint Office of Energy and Transportation.
