Hybrid vehicles arrive on campus
Facilities Design and Construction staff members are driving two 2009 Nissan Altima hybrid vehicles, which arrived on campus in December. John Shupe, assistant vice president for facilities management, said these are the college’s first two hybrids. The vehicles join the department’s fleet of nine electric service vehicles.
“This is another step forward in our continuing effort to achieve a more sustainable campus. Our new hybrid vehicles use less fuel than conventional vehicles, which saves money and helps to reduce the campus’s carbon footprint,” said Shupe.
