The Toro Company will partner with the U.S. state of New York to provide next-generation turf maintenance equipment powered by hydrogen fuel cells. The project supports the state's executive order to adopt “Green and Clean” state buildings and vehicles. The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) is contributing U.S. $380,025 toward the project.

Toro (Bloomington, Minnesota, U.S.) will provide Niagara Falls State Park (NFSP) with three hydrogen-powered utility vehicles based on the Toro® Workman® chassis by mid-2007.

The NYSERDA-funded project included hydrogen fuel cell vehicles because they generate minimal emissions. Other benefits include: reduced noise pollution, increased machine efficiency over gasoline- or diesel-powered equipment, rapid refueling versus slow recharging of battery-operated equipment, and low emissions (the fuel cells emit water vapor as a byproduct).

It is expected the utility vehicles will be used by NFSP and Beaver Island State Park and Golf Course to shuttle workers and grounds equipment, drag infields, haul turf materials, and assist with refuse and snow removal.
