The Silicon Valley Leadership Group will also hold an event next week called "Clean and Green" and release a 52-page annual projection which suggests using plug-in hybrids to reduce our emissions of green house gases. The Silicon Valley Leadership Group plans to work with A123Systems, probably the best plug-in conversion company, to get the cars into the executives hands.
Pacific Gas and Electric already has a PHEV called "Sparky" but they will convert a car as part of the plug-in push as well. "What does Silicon Valley have to do with this?" asks Tom Hayse, one of the 100 and chief executive of ETM-Electromatic. "We're trying to make it happen sooner. ... [It's] a Silicon Valley attitude - hey, take it into production and drive down the cost."
