Valley College EV Tech Program receives grant funding

San Bernardino Valley College (SBVC) is the lucky recipient of a $25,000 grant from SoCalGas for the college’s Clean Energy/EV Tech program.

The funding, part of the utility’s SoCal Climate Champions Grant program, will aid the school in purchasing training modules and classroom tools for a second lab section which is desperately needed to support a growing interest in the college’s CNG/Clean Energy Training Expansion program.

“The San Bernardino Valley College Foundation is proud to partner with SoCalGas to provide meaningful community climate solutions,” said SBVC Foundation Director Mike Layne. “The innovations catalyzed by the SoCal Climate Champions Grant awards will make all our communities in Southern California more sustainable and resilient.”

SBVC launched the EV technician training program in 2020.

Over the past decade, SBVC has been at the forefront of efforts to prepare the future workforce for careers in operating and maintaining clean energy and zero-emission vehicle heavy- and medium-duty trucks.
