Montana Governor Schweitzer Checks out Converted Electric Pickup
BILLINGS - Governor Brian Schweitzer stopped by the KULR-8 studios Thursday, for a ride in a one of a kind vehicle.
KULR-8's Herb Welch's, self-built, electric pickup truck. The truck runs off of a power system made up of 20 batteries, located where an engine would normally be, and underneath a hydraulic powered bed truck bed.
Schweitzer credited Welch's ingenuity, saying it's just another example of energy security. He says if plug-in hybrids were available in this country; it would replace a lot of the countries dependency on imported oil.
