Recently, it is understood from Nanning Municipal Communications and Transportation Bureau that as a part of green public service projects, the project of purchasing new-energy buses is progressing smoothly.
According to the green development concept and the energy-saving and emission-reduction requirement of the nation, Nanning is making efforts in constructing the national bus metropolis by encouraging the use of new-energy buses and developing public transportation. In accordance with relevant policy targets, by December 20th of this year, Nanning should purchase 100 new-energy buses and put them into use. Presently, 108 new-energy buses have been bought, with a completion rate of 108%. Among them, 68 are in operation, and 40 are being processed with license plates.
In terms of fiscal subsidies, the newly bought new-energy buses are paid by transportation enterprises and partly subsidized by the government. In particular, the Nanning Municipal Finance Bureau has come up with an incentive scheme to reward enterprises with newly purchased new-energy buses. The reward standard is that every new-energy bus is subsidized 30% of the purchase price with the maximum of no more than 240 thousand yuan. Enterprises can get the reward after passing inspection acceptance of their new-energy buses.
