As part of the order, GreenPower received a $3 million deposit from the state per the agreement with the company to manufacture zero-emission, all-electric school buses in West Virginia. “Today marks another milestone on that journey through our partnership with the state of West Virginia. Operating and maintenance costs for a GreenPower all-electric school bus is believed to be 70% to 80% less than a conventional diesel school bus. The West Virginia legislature has also passed a new law providing an additional 15% to school districts under the state’s School Foundation Allowance for miles driven in a GreenPower all-electric school bus manufactured in West Virginia. West Virginia’s purchase of the GreenPower school buses comes on the heels of the pilot project directed by Governor Justice last June.
