Utility Executives Consider Mass Order of Plug-in Hybrids for Company Fleets


Util­i­ty fleets typ­i­cal­ly include sev­er­al thou­sand vehi­cles, many of which could be replaced with plug-in hybrids that recharge dur­ing off-peak elec­tric demand. Pro­lif­er­a­tion of the tech­nol­o­gy among con­sumers could be prof­itable and would reduce oil imports and over­all emis­sions so util­i­ties have a vest­ed inter­est in see­ing the tech­nol­o­gy become suc­cess­ful.
