The Fiscal Year 2018-19 Funding Plan allocated $10 million from CARB’s Low Carbon Transportation Investments to provide incentives for reducing greenhouse gases from schools in disadvantaged communities.
The goal of this new grant is to deploy synergistic greenhouse gas emissions reduction techniques that can be emulated on school campuses statewide. This funding is geared toward clean transportation and mobility options in and around schools. The project concept includes strategies for electric vehicles and electric vehicle supply equipment in K-12 schools, such as electrification of the school’s yellow and white fleet, a car share component for staff at schools to rotate using zero-emission vehicles, zero-emission lawn and garden equipment, solar energy generation and battery backup, and outreach to students, district personnel, and the broader school community including parents.
