Clean Cities: Sacramento County Hydrogen
Our success story this week takes us to Sacramento County, California, where they’ve struck gold by going green!
With one of the nation’s leading green public fleets, over 60% percent of the county owned vehicles run on alternative fuel or advanced technology. Now, the county is one of the first to incorporate hydrogen into their fleet by buying 4 Toyota Mirai fuel cell sedans.
With an over 300-mile range, and zero emissions, these Mirais pack a powerful environmental punch. And with help from Sacramento Clean Cities, rebates and incentives cut their bottom line too.
KEITH LEECH: “No government agency would typically buy a $57,000 vehicle for a motor pool, but because of the incentives available from Toyota, the price of that vehicle actually got down to be competitive with the vehicles that we replaced, a conventional hybrid vehicle.”
JOHN DAVIS: With over 30 public hydrogen fueling stations across California, and 100 planned, infrastructure is growing, paving the way for a California future powered by fuel cells.
