Vermont Utility Wants You to Plug In Your Hybrid

Central Vermont Public Service Co (CVPS), the largest utility in Vt., has purchased two plug-in vehicles and is encouraging others to do the same by reducing rates to charge the vehicles.

"CVPS plug 'n go gives our customers the opportunity to be on the cutting edge of reducing automobile emissions and extending vehicle mileage, and the next generation of highly efficient cars and trucks," said CVPS President Bob Young.

Of the two plug-ins purchased by CVPS, one will be operated by Green Mountain College, which will study the cars performance.

Like Google, Plug-In Partners and others, CVPS is looking to encourage the automakers to start building fleets of plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEV). Converting existing hybrids into plug-ins can cost $10,000 and voids the guarantees from the carmakers.
