USA: SRP to join Chevy Volt test project

Salt River Project will be part of a research effort with the Electric Power Research Institute to test electric vehicles and how they use power.

The utility will use a single Chevrolet Volt as part of its fleet to test driving distances, charging times and user habits.

Information will be collected through the car’s OnStar system and transmitted back to EPRI. SRP will not have direct access to the information but will share in the analysis of the vehicle, said spokesman Scott Harles

“We are hoping to understand how the cars are used, develop an understanding of charging behavior, state of charge, length of trips and reliance on gas back up,” he said.
