Google Launches RechargeIT Plug-In Hybrid Car Initiative and Unveils Solar Installation

Just two days ago, Google.org, the philanthropic arm of Google Inc. announced the RechargeIT initiative (www.google.org/recharge/) that aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and oil dependence by accelerating the adoption of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles ("plug-ins").

As part of this initiative, Google.org awarded $1 million in grants and announced plans for a $10 million request for proposals (RFP) to fund development, adoption and commercialization of plug-ins, fully electric cars and related vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technology.

These guys at Google are really something. Isn't that great?
