Virginia’s First Electric School Buses have Arrived
We’re making big strides with little footprints. As the state’s leader in electric school bus deployment, we have delivered 50 Saf-T-Liner C2 Jouley school buses to Virginia localities through the Dominion Energy Electric School Bus Program, and we’re planning for many more. Carrying the world’s most precious cargo – tomorrow’s leaders – our buses are part of a larger, global movement committed to making the world a cleaner place for our students and communities.
FUNDING FOR ELECTRIC SCHOOL BUSES
There is significant demand across Virginia for electric school buses, but for most localities, the upfront cost of an electric school bus is unattainable without the support of supplemental grants and incentives. On average, an electric school bus costs about three times the amount of a similar diesel-powered bus. The good news – there are many programs available to make purchasing an electric school bus possible for your school division! Learn more about funding opportunities for electric school buses.
