San Diego’s First Certified Green Plumber, Anderson Plumbing, Heating and Air, says it has expanded its vehicle fleet with the addition of a new Diesel-Electric Hybrid Hino Cab-Over.

“Each of our service vehicles is a plumbing parts warehouse on wheels,” Mary Jean Anderson, president of Anderson Plumbing, Heating and Air, says. “We carry two different size water heaters, six different faucets, sinks, two toilets and a huge assortment of plumbing repair parts, all of which weigh at least one ton.”

The Hino COE model was designed from the ground-up for the U.S. and arrives with the benefit of six generations of technology evolution and more than 10,000 production vehicles already on the road around the world.

In addition to the new hybrid truck, Anderson Plumbing, Heating and Air has replaced all its Comfort Advisor service vehicles with Hybrid Ford Transits, which can travel up to 354 miles on a single tank of gas.
