spirit-of-dcThe “Spirit of DC’s” on the road again on its Sun Belt Grand Finale from San Francisco to Washington, DC.

Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle All Around America (PHEV3A) tour with “EVJerry” Asher driving started last year on Earth Day, in front of the Nation’s Capitol. The plug-in hybrid vehicle the “Spirit of DC” was designed to run on electricity alone for about 10 miles before reverting back to acting like an ordinary hybrid. Now the “Spirit” is busy promoting plug-ins at America’s schools.

The PHEV3A mission is to educate America one town (or in this case one school) at a time on getting its own energy independence back by moving away from imported oil to using home grown electrons preferably from renewable energy sources like solar, wind and hydro-power. The Spirit f DC will complete the PHEV All Around America educational tour back in Washington, DC on the weekend before Earth Day at the Environmental Protection Agency’s 5th Annual National Sustainable Design Expo.
