Air Force leads way on electric vehicles

Los Angeles Air Force base is about to become the first federal facility that relies almost entirely on electric vehicle technology for its fleet. Within the next year, the Air Force will replace virtually all the vehicles on the base with plug-in electric technology. The only exceptions are emergency and security vehicles. The Air Force says the vehicles will not only get their power from the electric grid, but they'll be able to supply power back to the base in the event of an outage. The Pentagon plans to use the project as a test bed before it starts a large scale integration of electric vehicles into the Defense Department
