Clean Cities: Eden Prairie, Minnesota
Our success story this week takes us to GE capital in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. In 2012 GE built this 6,000 square foot vehicle innovation center as a showcase for the advancement of alternative fuel vehicles for commercial use.
Fleet managers can sample a wide variety of alt-fuel models -from this plug-in Toyota Prius hybrid, to this compressed natural gas bi-fuel Chevrolet Silverado, with a half-mile road course allowing direct comparisons.
BRAD SMITH: GE leads the way in so many different manners and this is just another example of them leading the way in something that is socially responsible.
JOHN DAVIS: As part of GE’s alt-fuel focus, a solar carport with EV charging is available for employees as GE has close to 5,000 EVs in its U.S. fleet alone. A charter member of the Department of Energy’s national clean fleets partnership-General Electric is continuing its 135-year commitment to education, innovation, and “imagination at work”.
