There are more than 500,000 yellow school buses in the U.S. Those buses, on average, get between 7 and 8 miles per gallon. Imagine if those buses were hybrid buses, capable of a 40-percent increase in fuel efficiency and a 90 percent reduction in particulate matter. Here in California, one community is doing just that. The Napa Valley Unified School District just took delivery of the first plug-in electric diesel hybrid school bus in the nation. It took a lot of collaboration to see this project through, including the efforts of the Bay Area Air Quality Management District, PG&E, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Advanced Energy, IC Corporation and others.
