GreenPower Motor to Bring All-Electric School Buses to West Virginia in 2022

GreenPower Motor Company CEO Fraser Atkinson joined Cheddar News to discuss Gov. Jim Justice's plan for West Virginia to reduce carbon emissions in 2022 by adding a school bus fleet of B.E.A.S.T.s — or battery-electric automated school transportation. Atkinson discussed why the state was perfect for manufacturing electric buses, and the economic impact its facilities will have on the region. He also noted a health impact the new vehicles could have, citing research that children from kindergarten to sixth grade are most at risk for cancers and respiratory illnesses due to exhaust pollution.
