Energy representatives from Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, have joined other utility officials from the state to support Plug-In Partners, a national campaign to convince auto manufacturers to build plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV).
A recent meeting of the Wisconsin Public Power Inc. included an exhibition of the Columbia ParCar and a Toyota Prius converted to a PHEV. Officials were briefed on the effectiveness of neighborhood electric vehicles (NEV), learning that one municipality uses a NEV to read meters. Many Wisconsin communities have passed measures to allow NEVs on public streets. Officials also got test drives in a NEV and PHEV.
