If one man could be credited with bringing the first plug-in hybrid electric school bus to California, it would be Ralph Knight. As transportation director for the Napa Valley Unified School District, Ralph’s tireless four-year effort paid off with the delivery of the first “green” yellow bus, part of a nationwide initiative led by the non-profit corporation, Advanced Energy, out of Raleigh, N.C. The electric vehicle, or EV, will double fuel efficiency and reduce harmful emissions by up to 90 percent. (The school district’s bus fleet runs completey on alternative fuels — the rest of their fleet is powered by CNG!) Thanks Ralph!
