The California Transit Association will be offering their Fall Webinar on September 28 at 10 AM PST. The webinar will cover all the details of AB 118 alternative fuel funding opportunities in the state of California.
Assembly Bill 118 (Nunez) was signed into law in October 2007 and provides approximately $200 million annually through 2015 for new alternative fuel and air quality incentive programs. Transit agencies that already operate alternative-fuel buses or plan to integrate alternative fuel technology into their fleets may qualify for funding under the AB 118 programs.
Scheduled presenters include Aleecia Macias from the California Energy Commission (CEC), discussing the agency's Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program, and Robert Meyer from the Employment Training Panel (ETP), covering the opportunities available for workforce training funding for alternative fuel projects.

Like other forms of hybrid technology, CNG hybrid systems are designed to improve vehicle efficiency. In the case of the recently announced CNG hybrid buses, fuel efficiency has been increased by up to 40%. For transit fleets, this allows for both increased range and the potential combination of reduced onboard storage and bus weight.
