California project aims to develop plug-in hybrid electric vehicle for utilities.
The Electric Power Research Institute, Ford, Eaton Corp., and the California South Coast Air Quality Management District are jointly developing the PHEV "boom trucks."
Through the project, four prototype PHEV trucks, based on a Ford F-550 chassis, will be tested this year by utilities Southern California Edison, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, and Pacific Gas & Electric.
