Colorado County Fleet Going Hybrid

11 March 2007

Eagle County, Colorado, has purchased 20 new 2007 Priuses to replace 50% of its light-duty vehicle fleet.

“We’re home to two of the finest ski resorts in the world, Vail and Beaver Creek and having clean emissions means having clean air, protecting our environment,” [Eagle County Commissioner Arn] Menconi said.

It’s the reason nearly all 20 of the cars are the color green. Justin Finestone, with Eagle County communications, says the color, as with the cars, should symbolize Eagle County’s efforts to go green.

The switch to hybrids will also save about $21,000 in fuel cost.

I will assume that it is $21,000 *per year* in fuel costs.
