Saving 10 gallons of gasoline per day per truck, FPL now has 8 hybrid diesel medium duty trucks on the road. These trucks are running B20 fuel. (The press release makes the mistake of calling the 20% component "virgin soybean oil"). The electric motors give FPL this capability:
# FPL line specialists can operate a hybrid truck’s bucket using just the electric motors for as long as two hours and then recharge them in three minutes.
# Each hybrid truck is capable of producing 25 kilowatts of electricity.
It's not clear when we might see these trucks in Brevard County - currently the listed locations are: Palm Beach County, Miami-Dade County and Sarasota.
