(Recorded Webinar) Immediate Access to Reliable Funding for Electric Bus Deployment & Operation

Understanding clean fuel programs and making them work for your school district, in California and beyond.

If you operate electric school bus or are interested in purchasing them, watch this free webinar on-demand to learn how to plan and strategize for funding incentives.

Clean fuel programs such as the California Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) drive oil refiners to “clean up or pay up,” mandating that they lower the carbon intensity in transportation fuels or pay you for “cleaning up” by operating cleaner vehicles such as electric or CNG school buses.

The LCFS program can help your school district generate recurring revenue and accelerate your sustainability and electrification goals. Similar programs already exist in Oregon and British Columbia and are emerging quickly across the country – expected soon in New York, Washington, New Mexico, Canada and beyond.

Join SRECTrade as they take you through the program, why it matters to you, and how you can get started.

You will also hear from Matthew Belasco, the director of maintenance, operations, and transportation at Pittsburg Unified School District. He will provide insights on his experience with incentive programs such as the California LCFS. Located in the Bay Area of California, Pittsburg USD is leading the push for renewables, energy efficiency, and fleet electrification for a cleaner, safer environment for its 12,000 students.
