Los Angeles Air force Base goes PEV
Department of Defense (DoD) effort toward large-scale integration of PEV’s into its fleet.
According to the Environmental News Network, Air Force officials unveiled a plan to establish Los Angeles Air Force Base as the first Federal facility to replace 100% of its general-purpose fleet with Plug-in Electric Vehicles (PEV’s).
This is the start of a broader Department of Defense (DoD) effort toward large-scale integration of PEV’s into its fleet. Lessons learned from this project will help DoD and other agencies understand operational implications of fleet electrification, while demonstrating cutting-edge PEV technologies, such as vehicle-to-grid (V2G) systems. The move is the latest example of an Administration strategy of supporting emerging sustainable technologies, including biofuels, by being an early adopter. Large-scale government purchases can stimulate private sector investment, help create and nourish new domestic industries, and make government more cost-effective at the same time.
