Sacramento Greens Up Light Rail

July 23, 2007

It’s become commonplace see alternative fuel buses in many municipalities across the United States.   Now the Sacramento Bee is reporting that the California capital has identified that city’s light rail system for an energy efficiency upgrade.   Call it the Prius effect.   Much like the systems Toyota uses in their hybrid vehicles, Sacramento hopes to take advantage of regenerative braking technology to capture energy to be used in helping the trains to accelerate out of the stations.   Energy created while braking will be captured and sent back into the lines that provide power to the light rail system.   According to the Sacramento Bee, forty percent of the energy from braking can be recovered and sent back to accelerating trains.
