Two utility companies in California are going to do fleet testing for the i-MiEV. Kinda cool that I might get a shot at seeing it in action around these parts. Southern California Edison is going to see how the cars can connect with the smart grid and advanced meters, and Pacific Gas & Electric will handle finding out the impact of all the charging that’ll be going on to keep EVs running. PG&Es info will also go towards showing the benefits of using all-electric vehicles in Cali. Seems like they’re pretty confident they’ll be thumbs-uped. This will be important info to gather considering San Jose, CA is gearing up for EV use, among other CA cities, as is Oregon. I’m going to be keeping my eyes peeled for info about testing and see if I can catch one out and about.
