It was great to exhibit at the 9th Annual AltWheels Fleet Day this past Monday. We were one of sixty (60) vehicles on display. Technologies on display included, electric trucks and cars, CNG, Propane and LNG conversions, and of course eNow’s “solar demonstration vehicle”. Companies, such as Ford, GM, Chrysler, Toyota, Honda, BAF, American Power Group, and XL Hybrid were all exhibiting their latest technologies.

Users, such as Pepsi/Frito Lay, Staples, National Grid, NSTAR, Massport, Clean cities and American Public Works Association, attended the event to see how alternative technology vehicles could lower operating costs and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. I would say that the number one take away from the expo is that energy costs are first and foremost on everyone’s mind. Whether it is federal, state and local fleets, utility companies, consumer companies, or transportation fleets, everyone knows they need to find ways to lower energy costs.
