Green Fund Award Recipients

Spring 2012: Facilities, Planning and Operations - Electric Vehicle

A Green Fund Grant was received to purchase an electric Columbia ParCar Mega Van, SAS's first electric vehicle. The Mega Van replaced a 1991 maintenance-intensive and highly polluting petro-fueled Daihatsu, and is currently being used by SAS computing to facilitate the pickup and delivery of computing equipment.
