The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) today is announcing more than $2.1 million in grants for its innovative electric school bus pilot project. Five school districts across Minnesota will receive service from eight electric school buses. The MPCA’s pilot project is the first electric school bus project in the Midwest and one of several initiatives the state has launched to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and address climate change. Schools in Faribault, St. Paul and Columbia Heights, Morris, Osseo and Fergus Falls are receiving the funding. In total, the eight electric school buses will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 1,120 tons over their lifetime.
