Hydrail Technology and Jobs

Hydrail Technology and Jobs We'll discuss Hydrail technology, which uses hydrogen fuel cells instead of traditional diesel-electric generators to power rail motors. A Mooresville resident has been at the forefront of the hydrail movement, he joins us to talk about the latest advances in hydrail technology, including "hydrolleys," streetcars powered by hydrogen fuel. We'll talk about how this technology is faring around the world, plans to use it here in the US, and how Charlotte's Light Rail system may benefit.
