Detroit, Michigan – The Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) has approved US$5 million to study plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) as a Michigan economic development catalyst, the near-term vehicle-utility interface, the mid/long-term vehicle utility interface, and the environmental and electric utility system impacts of PHEVs.

The PHEV Pilot consists of a partnership of the University of Michigan, General Motors Corporation, and DTE Energy Company.

“The grants awarded today will help the state promote and move forward in the development and application of energy efficient technologies,” said MPSC Chairman Orjiakor Isiogu.

The MPSC is an agency within the Department of Labor & Economic Growth.
