The EC’s Climate Mayors EV Purchasing Collaborative and Sourcewell held a webinar on Dec. 10, 2020, about the new electric school bus suppliers available through the Collaborative. The team reviewed Lion Electric, Thomas Built Buses, IC Bus, and Blue Bird and their electric school bus options, along with information on resources and leasing options.

Due to the budget shortfalls public agencies are facing as a result of COVID-19, many are looking for creative ways to save money and pursue their climate goals, including electrifying their fleets. Electric vehicles (EVs) have a lower total cost of ownership than traditional gas vehicles, and the Electrification Coalition can help fleets calculate the business case to go electric. The EC team is here to provide your fleet with technical resources and EV expert assistance.
