AZ utility changing vehicle fleet to electric plug-ins

Arizona'south largest electric utility is converting its vehicle fleet to electric plug-in models.

Phoenix-based AZ Public Service Co. says it'll switch cars, trucks, forklifts and bucket trucks to plug-in models as current vehicles go out of service and are replaced.

APS says the conversion will get years but reduce emissions and fuel costs while providing the company with more efficient, longer-lasting and quieter vehicles

According to APS, one specific advantage to plug-in hybrid electric bucket trucks is that they don't require engine idling to work the lift. Instead, those trucks' utilize of an on-demand electric motor reduces engine hours.

APS spokeswoman Jenna Shaver says many of the company'south more than 2.100 vehicles are pickups and that replacement of those trucks will wait until electric plug-in versions are commercially available.
