Electric Fuel and RTC to Cooperate in Bus Demo
Electric Fuel Corp. (New York) announced that the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) has agreed to participate in a proposed demonstration of Electric Fuel's revolutionary zinc-air fuel cell system operating a mini-fleet of transit buses in Las Vegas. Electric Fuel's zinc-air, zero-emission, electric transit bus is designed to provide enough energy to power a full-sized city bus for a full day on a single refueling.
Electric Fuel President and CEO Yehuda Harats said, "The RTC's early commitment to participate in the demonstration program is an important vote of confidence in the zinc-air fuel cell system. We look forward to seeing our buses running on the streets of Las Vegas and in due course, on a commercial basis in cities across America. Based on the strong congressional and government support we have received thus far, we anticipate gaining the necessary funding for this important program."
