Microsoft Internet Service to Help Utilities, Consumers Charge Electric Vehicles

NULL - March 30, 2010

Ford’s Focus Elec­tric will be the first to use Microsoft’s Inter­net-based ser­vice to help own­ers and util­i­ties man­age recharg­ing loca­tions and times. Hohm, an Inter­net-based ser­vice, will help own­ers deter­mine when and how to most effi­cient­ly and afford­ably recharge their bat­tery elec­tric and plug-in hybrid vehi­cles while help­ing util­i­ty com­pa­nies man­age the added demands of elec­tric vehi­cles on the elec­tri­cal grid.
