Some corporations are also joining in the march to renewables. This week, FedEx announced it would add solar cells to its Oakland Airport facility. The company expects the cells to provide 80 percent of its peak load requirements, says Ryan Furby, a company spokesman. This week, the company also rolled out more hybrid vehicles that use a combination of diesel engines and lithium batteries, increasing fuel efficiency by 50 percent and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
