If anyone has first-hand knowledge of the importance
of energy efficiency, it's electric utilities. That's why many
such organizations across the country are finding new ways
to improve their own energy efficiency through improvements to their fleets.
This issue of Transportation & Logistics
International highlights two electric
utilities and their efforts to cut down on
the amount of energy they consume as
well as improve overall efficiencies to
save their customers money.
This month's cover feature, PPL Electric Utilities in Pennsylvania, has been
exploring ways in which hybrid vehicles
can help reduce their environmental
impact as well as improve their fuel
consumption. For example, the utility
is using battery-powered bucket drops.
These eliminate the need for crews to
keep their engines running to move
the buckets up and down so that crews
can work on power lines. PPL Electric
Utilities has reported great results from
using the technology, and it expects to
implement it in future fleet vehicles.
In Florida, Jacksonville Electric
Authority is exploring the use of com-

pressed natural gas as an alternative
to traditional fuels in order to improve
the emissions and fuel consumption of
its fleet. Although the program is in its
infancy, the utility expects alternative
fuels to play a larger part in its fleet
operations in the future. Additionally, it
has joined with its workforce to streamline its vehicles and improve efficiencies
through a revised set of specs for all new
vehicles going forward.
With their constant attention to issues
based on energy consumption, it's no
surprise that electric utilities are so
plugged in to the latest efficiency trends
in the transportation sector.
