PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Portland General Electric awarded six electric school buses to school districts in and around the Portland area, which could help with transportation being the greatest source of greenhouse gas emissions in Oregon. PGE's Electric School Bus Fund is financed by the Oregon Clean Fuels Program through the state's Department of Environmental Quality. The electric school bus competitive grant awards began in 2020 when PGE funded the first five electric school buses in Oregon.
