LANSING, MI – The Michigan Public Service commission heard from automakers and utility companies Monday about plans to roll out new plug-in electric vehicles.
Automakers have been working with electric power companies to make sure the vehicles don't overtax the power grid as they become more popular.
Anthony Earley is the Chairman of DTE Energy. He says the state's power grid has plenty of capacity to meet the overall demand. But Earley says utilities will have to make sure local communities are up to par.
