Ball State Adds Series Hybrid Electric Bus to Fleet

18 April 2005

Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana, has added a new series hybrid eBus to its fleet.

The 22-foot eBus’s electric motor is powered by a NiCad battery back which is recharged by 30 kW Capstone MicroTurbine generator, fueled by diesel. (Earlier post.)

The eBus hybrid is projected to burn 26 gallons of fuel per day, compared to nearly 40 gallons by the other busses.

Ball State switched its diesel fleet to a B20 biodiesel blend two years ago, and will be burning B20 in the microturbine generator as well.
