Alternative Fuel School Bus and Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Station Rebate Program
The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) offers rebates for projects that repower or replace an actively used, engine model year 2009 or older, diesel school bus with an alternative fuel. Eligible alternative fuels and technologies include all-electric, electric hybrid, propane, and natural gas. Applicants may receive rebates of up to 50% of project costs. Charging infrastructure for electric buses is eligible for funding, but is subject to a per-charger maximum and project cap. The program is funded by Oklahoma’s portion of the Volkswagen Environmental Mitigation Trust. Applications must be submitted through Oklahoma’s <a href“https://www.deq.ok.gov/air-quality-division/clean-diesel-dera/”>Clean Diesel Program. For more information, maximum rebate amounts, funding availability, and application deadlines, see the DEQ Alternative Fuel School Bus Program website.
