From BYD: Millions In Funding Could Be Available For Electric School Buses Through California Set-Aside

The California Air Resources Board (CARB) approved a $130 million set-aside to help public school districts and other qualifying entities residing in small- and medium-sized air districts cover most of the cost of a new zero-emission school bus, according to a BYD press release.

The application period for the California Public School Bus Set-Aside, which is intended to cover most, if not all, of the cost of a new zero-emission battery electric school bus like those manufactured by BYD, opened June 20.

“BYD applauds CARB’s HVIP Public School Bus Set-Aside which directly supports the current and next generation of students by providing them with clean, sustainable zero-emission transportation,” BYD Senior Vice President Patrick Duan said. “The future of clean energy is here, and BYD is happy to provide a solution to school districts looking to electrify their fleets.”

For the first 90-days of the application period, CARB will give priority to eligible applicants in small-sized air districts that serve disadvantaged communities. After the 90-day period, requests will be based on a first come, first served basis.
