SAN ANTONIO — More than one million electric cars were sold in the US through the end of 2018. CPS Energy is hopping on board by gradually shifting their vehicles to electric to save money.
CPS energy has 3,500 vehicles on the road, and now, the company has started going electric.
Harold Lambert, a journeyman mechanic with CPS Energy said, "We recently purchased 34, in 2018, hybrid F150 pick up trucks. This year we purchased 10 non-plug-in hybrids and 15 more plug-in hybrids."
"Not only will these vehicles cut down on emissions improving air quality in San Antonio, but because they have better fuel economy, the cost in the long term will be cut down, so it's a win-win for the community," Lambert added. "We are able to put all the systems on our vehicles and still maintain the factory warranty and then have the hybrid capabilities."
