PG&E Adds New Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicles to its Fleet

Pacific Gas and Electric Company, which has the fourth largest alternative-fuel truck fleet in the nation, today expanded its leadership role in the research, development and utilization of clean fuel technology as DaimlerChrysler handed over the keys to three hydrogen fuel cell (F-Cell) vehicles. Through daily use, the aptly named F-Cells will supply DaimlerChrysler and PG&E with operational experience and technical data that will help improve the next generation of fuel cell vehicles. The data collected will also contribute to the U.S. Department of Energy's Hydrogen Learning Demonstration Project and support the federal Freedom Car Program.

"DaimlerChrysler has invested over $1 billion in hydrogen fuel cell technology," said Mark Chernoby, vice president, Advance Vehicle Engineering -- Chrysler Group. "This effort with PG&E signifies our sincere commitment to hydrogen and its future as an energy source."

PG&E's three F-Cells are part of DaimlerChrysler's 100-plus fuel cell vehicle fleet; powered by Ballard stacks, it's the largest fuel cell vehicle fleet in the world.
