DENVER-- The world's first solar-powered ambulance will soon roll on the streets of Denver. Denver Health Medical Center will soon have the solar-powered "green" ambulance. It's being assembled right now in the engineering department at the University of Denver.
Ambulances are notorious energy hogs. Because they are filled with medical and communication equipment that has to be constantly kept at full charge, ambulances are parked throughout the city spewing fumes and consuming diesel 24 hours a day.
