Biodiesel Fuel Use Incentive for Schools

The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) may provide school districts financial aid to cover the incremental cost of purchasing biodiesel to operate school buses, as compared to the cost of petroleum diesel fuel. If in any fiscal year insufficient funds are available to provide school districts with the full amount of reimbursement for which a school district qualifies, DPI will prorate the available funds among the entitled school districts on a per pupil basis. For more information, see the Wisconsin Public Service Commission’s Office of Energy Innovation Funding website. (Reference Wisconsin Statutes 121.575)
