Seattle City Light to test plug-in cars’ appetite

Seattle City Light is getting on the smart-charging bandwagon.

The public utility said it will monitor the performance of 13 plug-in hybrid vehicles using technology developed by V2Green, a local start-up founded by a former Microsoftie. V2Green develops software and hardware to help utilities handle charging loads for electric vehicles — a business that’s could boom if the cars become more popular.

V2Green’s equipment will collect data on fuel efficiency and electricity usage, and send it to analysts at the Department of Energy’s Idaho National Labs. Other utilities are also part of the experiment, but Seattle’s fleet is the largest.

The Toyota Priuses to be closely watched will be driven by Seattle City Light, the City of Seattle, the Port, the Puget Sound Clear Air Agency and King County.
