AT&T said Thursday that it has deployed its 1,000th alternative fuel vehicle in its fleet.

The telecom giant says the latest deployment is part of a $565 million 10-year investment to replace 15,000 vehicles with fuel efficient models through 2018.

AT&T's fleet currently totals more 77,000 vehicles.

Here's how AT&T's alternative fuel plan breaks down:

  • $350 million to buy 8,000 compressed natural gas vehicles over 5 years;
  • $215 million through 2018 to replace 7,100 fleet passenger cards with alternative fuel models.

AT&T estimates it will save 49 million gallons of gas over 10 years.
