Yesterday at the White House, Energy Secretary Ernie Moniz and I got to see American innovation in action, as Pacific Gas & Electric demonstrated their new plug-in hybrid bucket truck — a utility vehicle with emissions nearly 80% lower than a conventional truck.
Not only does PG&E’s plug-in hybrid utility vehicle run cleaner, it provides up to 120 kW of exportable power — meaning that the trucks can actually be used to shorten or end power outages by plugging their reserves into the grid.

The daughter of
entrepreneurs, Nina Vaca grew up believing that entrepreneurship and civic
leadership went hand-in-hand.
She likes to say
that she “had a front row seat to what it meant to be an entrepreneur,” working
in the family travel agency business by day and attending chamber and civic
events at night.
her award-winning IT services firm in 1996, Vaca has continued that legacy both
as an entrepreneur and a visible leader and advocate in the business community.
