Propane Bus Infrastructure: Saving Green by Going Green


Description:

Ready to be immersed in the world of alternative fuels for school buses, particularly propane-fueled buses? This webinar discusses the benefits of propane school buses. Propane school buses have the lowest total cost of ownership, as opposed to diesel, CNG or electric. Propane also is more reliable in cold weather, has a much quieter engine, and is cleaner for the students and community members. Learn the ins-and-outs of propane technology, and how it will benefit everyone in your district. Explore alternative funding sources to help offset the initial cost of the transition to propane. Many grant opportunities are available to school districts who are interested in propane school buses. Grants are available for the purchase of vehicles, as well as infrastructure and tax rebates for fuel purchasing.
