Hybrid-electric Car Experiment Plugs in Info on Mileage
Alan Shedd gets some questions when he parks his Toyota Prius and starts looking for a socket to plug his car in. Especially when people see the green-and-white decal saying the car gets 100 miles per gallon.
Shedd is a mechanical engineer for Jackson Electric Membership Corp., a nonprofit organization that supplies electricity to about 200,000 homes and businesses, including about 100,000 in Gwinnett County.
He drives a customized 2004 Toyota Prius. As part of a national experiment among electric cooperatives, Shedd's company car was modified to allow it to be plugged in when parked.
