In July 2004, Dominion Resources, Inc. (formerly VEPCO - Virginia Electric Power Company) awarded the sum of $600,000 to the Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE) for the implementation of projects that reduce emissions from school buses. Under an approved implementation plan, MDE disbursed funds to Anne Arundel County Public Schools (AACPS), Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS), and Prince George’s County Schools (PGCPS) to install diesel retrofit technology devices on school buses. These retrofits resulted in the following annual emissions reductions: 82.24 tons of CO, 13.32 tons of HC, 0.32 tons of PM, and 9.25 tons of NOx.
