Maine explores possibility of electric school buses
from Government Technology
Phasing in electric cars and trucks is a widely recognized benchmark in any plan to cut greenhouse gas emissions. Now there's a new stop being proposed on Maine's long, ambitious climate-change journey — battery-powered school buses. A bill in the Legislature this winter will ask the Department of Education to help transition Maine's fleet of 3,000 school buses to all-electric by 2040. The process would start this year, with the department setting aside money for e-buses as part of its ongoing vehicle addition and replacement program for school districts.
