Setting a record this year—for use of coal! From Robert Bryce’s substack column:
“The initial award of nearly $1 billion in rebates was enough to order around 2,300 electric school buses to be distributed among 372 school districts across the country. Through 2026, the Clean School Bus Program, created by the 2021 Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, will disburse a total of $5 billion— he single biggest investment of its kind.
“One year later, some of the buses financed by the first billion-dollar installment are already running daily routes. But not all—or even the majority — are on the road yet, and some school districts are struggling to keep up with the process of using the money.”
