New Jersey PSE&G to go Hybrid

In order to eliminate over 81,000 tons of carbon emissions and 850,000 gallons of gasoline, Public Service Electric and Gas Company decided to replace 1,300 vehicles with hybrids over the next decade starting this year.

This will include light trucks, hybrid bucket truck prototypes of which they have already purchased two of.

PSE&G wants to roll back their emissions to 1990 levels by 2020, which means they need to reduce their emissions by 20 percent of 46 million tons of CO2.

According to Ralph LaRossa, president and chief operating officer of PSE&G, "The fact is that transportation is New Jersey's largest source of carbon dioxide emissions, estimated to account for about half of all emissions. Focusing on transportation must be part of the strategy. To that end, we are transforming our fleet to one that is cleaner and greener - one that will allow us to make immediate gains in the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions."

With more companies and cities investing in hybrid vehicles (see FedEx, UPS, taxis, buses etc...), you can expect to see the cost of building and maintaining hybrid engines to continue to come down.
