Soldiers Charge Their Electric Vehicles


The Department of Defense plans to spend $20 million to increase the number of electric cars in use at six armed forces installations by up to a total 500 vehicles. That electric investment may end up saving taxpayers’ money in the long run.

When the DOD’s fleet of electric vehicles are off duty, they will continue to serve America by feeding energy into the electric grid. By pumping electricity into the grid during peak hours, the electric cars will help offset their cost.
