MEEP is supported by a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy. The project allows school districts to gain experience with electric school buses from multiple manufacturers, evaluate vehicle performance (including comparison to baseline conventional fuel buses), and provide valuable information about incorporating electric school bus technologies into their fleets.

Funded by the US Department of Energy, this $14.6 million project is designed to create a regional EV ecosystem in the District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia. It will connect the MidAtlantic Region’s cities through EV infrastructure subprojects including multimodal hubs such as airports, seaports, and logistics centers. It will also address educational, planning, and equity issues of populations near these hubs. The goal is to install approximately 200 EV charging units. It is a 3year project through 2024.

GWRCCC is providing technical assistance to the Vehicle Charging Innovations for Multi-Unit Dwellings (V.C.I-M.U.D) project designed to implement cost-effective options for electric vehicle (EV) charging at multi-unit dwellings (M.U.D). V.C.I-M.U.D engages stakeholders across the country, determines barriers to MUD and curbside residential EV charging, educates stakeholders about charging technologies, and assists them with on-site installations. The project is also developing a comprehensive MUD Charging Toolkit for building managers/owners, residents, electric utilities, and local governments to better understand the opportunities and rewards of EV charging.

The Diesel Emissions Reduction Act (DERA) Program funds grants and rebates that protect human health and improve air quality by reducing harmful emissions from diesel engines.

GWRCCC’s DERA Program project will retire 4 municipal short–haul utility vehicles and 10 municipal off–road construction vehicles belonging to the District of Columbia Water and Sewer Authority (DC Water) and replace them with 12 vehicles operating full–time on biodiesel (B100). Implemented across 31 zip codes in Washington, DC, this project will reduce US dependence on imported petroleum, demonstrate cost–effective energy efficiency, and improve air quality in the District and greater Washington region


The GUMBO (Guaranteeing Access to Underserved and Marginalized Populations by Building Employment Opportunities) Workforce Development Initiative aims to address the urgent need for skilled Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) installation and operations technicians. This initiative supports the growth of the nation’s electric vehicle charging infrastructure by training residents in the Greater Washington Region (DC, Maryland, and Virginia) to install, maintain, and service electric vehicle charging equipment.


By signing the EMPOWER Program pledge, your business or organization pledges to try to provide resources and guidance to ensure EV charging is accessible to all communities in the DC, Maryland, Virginia region. Join us in promoting sustainability for employees in the D.C., Maryland, and Virginia region.

We don’t need project specifics, just a commitment. By signing, you will try to install at least one EV charging station in the future.

EMPOWER is not funding charging installation, but GWRCCC can connect your business to funding opportunities and tax rebates and incentives. For more information please reach out to Durrell Jones and Darryl Barnes.

Future Green Leaders

In 2023, GWRCCC created the Future Green Leaders (FGL) Program that focuses on teaching young people the importance of leadership, financial empowerment, environmental stewardship, and green jobs that promote a cleaner, healthier community and planet. Students in this program become well-informed about sustainability and environmental basics.

FGL prepares our youth for leadership, jobs, and a better Tomorrow!
