LOS ANGELES — GreenPower Motor Company Inc., a manufacturer and distributor of zero-emission, electric-powered, medium and heavy-duty vehicles, announced that its all-electric school buses are eligible for rebates under the Environmental Protection Agency Clean School Bus program of $500 million for this year. Under the EPA program, qualified purchasers of GreenPower’s Type D BEAST all-electric school bus are eligible for a rebate of up $375,000 and up to $285,000 for GreenPower’s Type A Nano BEAST all-electric school bus. Online applications are expected to open later this month.
EPA’s new Clean School Bus Program provides five billion dollars over five years (FY 2022-2026) to replace existing school buses with clean and zero-emission models to help bring healthier transportation solutions to students around the country. GreenPower’s technologies can reportedly help school districts drive down fuel costs and minimize maintenance costs while delivering outstanding reliability and efficiency.
The EPA recently announced that they will be accepting online applications from May to August 2022. A review and selection process will commence in September and applicants will be advised of their status in October, and selected school districts are required to order electric or low-emission school buses by April 2023 to qualify for the rebates.
“While the program is not first-come first-served it is important to start this process as soon as possible,” said Michael Perez, Director of Contracts and Grants at GreenPower. “GreenPower remains committed to providing a better, cleaner and safer transportation future and has the knowledge and expertise in successfully working with incentive programs. We are here to navigate interested school districts through the process.”
GreenPower is a Canadian manufacturer of all-electric school buses.
