PG&E plug-in hybrid trucks bring power to work crews, neighborhoods


This is a seriously smart idea. Electric-powered hybrid trucks bring power with them when there’s a power outage. The truck IS the generator.

The purpose of a utility-owned plug-in hybrid truck includes the ability to carry a crew, supplies and tools to a job-site—mostly using electric power rather than gasoline—and then for the truck itself to act as a generator to power the crew’s tools.

If the plug-in hybrid work truck’s generator can deliver 125 kilowatts, the crew could hook it to a grid segment and re-power an entire neighborhood.
