The Texas Clean School Bus (TCSB) Program is offering grants to replace or retrofit school buses in Texas

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) is currently accepting applications for the Texas Emissions Reduction Plan (TERP) TCSB. Approximately $6.2 million in grants is available state-wide for school districts, charter schools, and transportation systems provided by countywide school districts, to replace or retrofit school buses operating on a regular daily route to and from school.

Grants are available on a first-come, first-served basis to reimburse up to 80% of the cost to replace a school bus with a newer, cleaner model, and up to 100% of the cost to retrofit a school bus.

Applications will be accepted until 5:00 p.m. on December 17, 2020 or until all funding is awarded.

For more information on the grant program and to access up-to-date information on the application criteria and process, or to receive copies of the application forms, visit www.terpgrants.org

Q: Which Central Texas landscaping company has used mower incentives through the Propane Council of Texas to grow the number of propane lawn mowers to 35 in its operation?

Answer: Benchmark Landscapes! Owner Casey Vickrey says “with the environmental benefits and the added benefit of the lower cost of propane – propane lawn mowers are a ‘win-win’.” Benchmark also uses propane mowers in its San Antonio and New Braunfels operations.

Two propane mower incentives are available, one state and one national.  Find information here:  Propane Mower Incentives – fuelingtexas.com.  Contact Jackie Mason with questions.
