Air Force going green on the ground

The Air Force is turning some attention from the sky to the ground, deploying 36 electric vehicles (EVs) at Los Angeles Air Force Base.

The 36 vehicles are the Department of Defense’s first non-tactical plug-in fleet and have the ability to take power from the grid and also supply more than 700 kilowatts back to it, if needed.  The fleet consists of sedans and trucks and a 12-person passenger van.

The Air Force plans to roll out EV fleets at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland and Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in New Jersey.  It is also looking at other alternative fuels, including ethanol flex fuel vehicles and biodiesel fuel stations.
