Our first monthly action item comes from Paul Scott of Plug In America.

Please take a moment to cut, paste, print and mail this letter to CARB so they know how many people demand Plug in Hybrids as they prepare for their critical Board meeting May 24th.

Dear Dr. Sawyer:

As a consumer, I want to have the choice to use cleaner, cheaper, domestic electricity to power my car. It is time for CARB to do everything in its power to promote plug-in cars, including plug-in hybrids and all-electric battery cars. Grid-connected cars can make an extraordinary contribution to reducing toxic and greenhouse gas emissions and lowering our dependence on petroleum. The ZEV mandate has already proven the technological and economic viability of all electric cars. CARB should do everything possible to expedite and facilitate the availability of electric cars and plug-in hybrids
