Pepco Holdings, Inc., the D.C. area electricity and natural gas utility company, announced this week that its 2,000-vehicle fleet will be converted to hybrids and other types of alternative power. The standard reasons of saving money and the environment apply.

PHI says it currently has about 80 trucks that run on alternative power, along with a few hybrids, so this changeover will affect a lot of vehicles. Thirty hybrids will be added this year and all of the trucks will soon start running on B20. As the rest of the vehicles in the fleet wear out, they will be replaced with vehicles that use less petroleum, like those mentioned above or ones that have E85-capable engines. PHEVs and other technologies will also be considered.
