Shrek is Green!

Universal Studios Hollywood today unveiled new solar powered golf carts that will be used for employee transport for both the movie studio and theme park. The carts were created by the Cruise Car company and will replace the currently used gas powered ones.

This is not the first green initiative taken by Universal Studios; new technologies in lighting, electric motor drives, and software designed to control hydraulic systems were employed in the manufacture of the "The Simpsons Ride", which debuted earlier this year, all designed to create large savings in energy consumption.

The Environmental Media Association's Green Seal Award for achievements in environmental awareness was awarded to Universal Studios Hollywood. It is the first-ever theme park to receive the award.

Congratulations and keep up the good work!!!
