PG&E Displayed Plug-In Vehicles at its Green Fleet Roadshow

Pacif­ic Gas & Elec­tric recent­ly host­ed its Green Fleet Road­show event on Justin Her­man Plaza in San Fran­cis­co in con­junc­tion with the Plug-In Elec­tric Vehi­cle Col­lab­o­ra­tive con­fer­ence at the Hyatt. Some of the vehi­cles PG&E has been bring­ing into its fleet include:

  • PG&E has been beta-test­ing the VIA plug-in hybrid truck for two years, and PG&E will be pur­chas­ing more of these when they go to pro­duc­tion lat­er in the year.
  • There are approx­i­mate­ly 55 Chevro­let Volts and 25 C-Max Ener­gis in the fleet, which are used as employ­ee pool car vehi­cles.
  • Approx­i­mate­ly 55 plug-in hybrid Altec Mate­r­i­al Han­dler Trucks, and 350 plug-in hybrid Altec Buck­et Trucks. The fleet has a few elec­tric trucks made by Smith Elec­tric Vehi­cles in three mod­els: ser­vice body, flatbed, and buck­et.
  • The All­tec Buck­et Trucks (fea­tured above in pho­to) saved the fleet more than $700,000 in fuel costs in 2012 com­pared to the con­ven­tion­al diesel trucks that they replaced.
