The MA Department of Environmental Protection has announced a new round of grants designed to continue driving electrification of the state’s transportation sector. The grant funds, derived from the VW settlement, will expand utilization of electric vehicles across the state. Locally, the Steamship Authority received $500,00 to purchase electric buses to carry passengers from parking lots to the docks. Other local recipients include the Cuttyhunk Ferry Company, Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School, the town of Dennis, and the Mass Maritime Academy. Read all about these grants here.
