Electric busses to help West Valley school district go green [Video]

The Union Elementary School District will be adding two electric school buses to its fleet, hoping to one day go entirely electric.

PHOENIX — A West Valley elementary school district is preparing to go green with its school bus fleet. Officials with Union Elementary School District said it’s all thanks to the $500,000  Clean Bus Program Grant.

“We couldn’t have afforded to have electric buses without the support of this grant,” Union Elementary School District Superintendent Kristine Morris said. “To hear word our vision has come to life and we’re getting this funding to help reduce the emissions for our community and to contribute to not only our community good but global good that’s what we’re here to do.”

The school was recently awarded a grant through the Environmental Protection Agency. Morris said it’ll help them purchase two electric school buses as well as the infrastructure needed to charge them.
