Holy Cross Energy recently took delivery of its first hybrid-electric bucket truck, which it will use for vegetation management. The utility received a grant of nearly $77,000 from the Colorado Clean Diesel Program, a statewide program managed by Carbondale-based non-profit CLEER that funds companies and other entities to replace diesel equipment with cleaner technologies. The hybrid truck has a conventional diesel engine but its bucket is powered by an onboard battery, resulting in fuel savings, reduced emissions, and quieter operation. Pictured from left to right: Stefan Johnson, HCE electric transportation specialist; Guy Ryan, HCE fleet supervisor; Bryan Hannegan, HCE CEO; Mary Harlan, CLEER transportation program associate; Zuleika Pevec, clean energy program manager; and Martín Bonzi, CLEER transportation manager.
