Electric Vehicles in our Fleet
You may have seen some of our electric vehicles on the road. We continue to add plug-in hybrid and all electric vehicles to our fleet, and have a goal of converting 60 percent of our fleet, including 100 percent of light duty vehicles, to cleaner energy vehicles by 2030.
|We added a Chevy Bolt, Hyundai Kona, and Nissan Leaf that are used regularly by employees. These 100% battery electric vehicles use only electricity for power. We also have a plug-in hybrid electric Chevy Volt that can draw on a gas-powered generator to power the battery for longer trips. These vehicles offer clean, quiet, efficient operation, and support our commitment to the environment.|
|We’ve added over a dozen bucket trucks that use diesel engines while driving, but can operate the bucket lift using only electricity. This allows our workers to shut down the trucks’ engines when working on power lines, saving fuel and eliminating noise and exhaust fumes.|
