Mark Frissora, Hertz chairman and chief executive officer, said in a statement that Hertz is, "helping move the 'electrification of transportation' dialog from policy to practice in D.C." The company is doing this by making renting a plug-in simple. For now, though, and due to the limited availability of vehicles, Hertz will restrict access to members only. To become a member, simply sign up at the Connect by Hertz site. Hertz expects to have up to 1,000 plug-in rental vehicles available by the end of 2011. So far, only 20 or so have entered its fleet.
