New report outlines how utility companies can help pay for electric school bus rollout
The vast majority of school buses in the United States and New Jersey run on diesel, a climate-polluting fossil fuel that releases toxic fumes linked to life-threatening health problems such as asthma, bronchitis and cancer. Zero-emission electric school buses provide a much cleaner, health-protective alternative. A new report identifies cutting-edge ways utility companies can assist school districts in paying for zero-emission bus rollouts and charging infrastructure, and how schools can reap the long-term benefits.
