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. For the current year $500 million is available for vehicles and $500 million for infrastructure.
For the current year, online applications opened on May 20, 2022 and close on August 19, 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 and must be delivered by October 1, 2024.
Qualified purchasers of GreenPower’s Type D Beast all-electric school bus are eligible for a rebate of up to $375,000.
Qualified purchasers of GreenPower’s Type A Nano BEAST all-electric school bus are eligible for a rebate of up to $285,000.
Successful awards will automatically include up to $20,000 for charging systems and related infrastructure.
