Consortium Grows in Support of Plug-in Hybrid Development

Austin, Texas [] Austin Energy and the Plug-In Partners were officially welcomed as advisory members of the Plug-In Hybrid Development Consortium, a growing team of automotive suppliers, manufacturers and other organizations working together to accelerate the commercial production of Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs). Austin Energy, a public utilities company in Austin, Texas, signed a “soft order” petition to purchase 40 plug-in hybrid vehicles for its own municipal fleet. The Plug-In Partners, a national grassroots campaign working to build public support for Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles, hopes to garner support through online petitions by cities across the country, by procuring “soft” fleet orders and by developing rebates and incentives for PHEVs.
