Title: LILCO (Long Island Lighting Co. ) pushes electric vehicles

Abstract

Acting as manufacturer's representative, LILCO recently showed five new electric vehicles to over 75 major Long Island companies and organizations as part of a U.S. Department of Energy demonstration project. The five new models include three different types and sizes of vans and a pickup truck, all made by Jet Industries Inc., and a compact station wagon made by Electric Vehicle Associates Inc. All are capable of going faster and further than required by federal standards. E. Daumann, manager of LILCO's energy services department, explained that the vehicle batteries will usually be charged during the evening hours, when electricity costs are lower and 40-50Vertical Bar3< of utility capacity nationwide is idle. LILCO plans to add 40 new electric vehicles to its present fleet of 12. Four other organizations selected by the Federal Government to be ''site operators'' for the demonstration project are American Telephone and Telegraph Co., Walt Disney World, Consolidated Edison Co. of New York Inc., and Penn Jersey Subaru. A. H. Dwing (Dep. Energy) said that the vehicles represent a means of conserving the world oil supplies.
