S.C. Schools To Receive Funding For Electric School Buses

The buses come from the EPA's Clean School Bus Program that focuses on reducing air pollution.

South Carolina is going to receive over $58 million from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to purchase electric school buses.

The Grant will be used to buy 148 electric buses for 16 school districts across the state and support infrastructure for the new buses.

Marion County is the only county in the Pee Dee to receive the funding. It will obtain 12 new electric busses and $4.7 million that can back funding for charging stations. However, it is the districts decision on the best investment for the money.
