100 tons of carbon emissions per year can be reduced with each #FCEB deployed:

Fuel cell buses operate with no local emissions, reduced noise, and a substantial reduction in greenhouse gas emissions on a well-to-wheel basis without some of the performance, range and route flexibility issues seen in other zero emission technologies. (Source: http://www.fch-ju.eu/news/fch-ju-launches-its-study-urban-buses-alternatives-power-trains-europe .) FCEB technology in California is currently at Technology Readiness Level 7 or “full-scale validation in relevant environments.” Level 9 is a fully commercial product. Establishing two Centers of Excellence in California with 40 buses per fleet can reduce the capital cost per bus to or below $1 million and fleet size will be sufficient to enable a fuel cost per mile competitive with a conventional bus.
