Some Kentucky school districts receiving hybrid buses.

Twenty-two public school districts in Kentucky
are scheduled to receive a total of 34 hybrid electric school buses
in August.
Melissa M. Howell, executive director of the Kentucky Clean
Fuels Coalition, last week gave a presentation on the buses during
a Trigg County School Board meeting. Both Trigg and Todd counties
are slated to receive a new hybrid bus.
Howell says the most common question she gets is, "Where do you
plug it in?"
She says the state Department of Education received a $12.9
million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy to purchase the
buses. In all, the state will have 213 hybrid buses, making
Kentucky the state with the largest hybrid school bus fleet in the
nation.
