Entergy buying more than a dozen hybrid utility vehicles
Entergy is buying more than a dozen hybrid utility vehicles and Tuesday the company demonstrated the new bucket truck.
It contains on-board batteries that workers can plug in and charge overnight.
When linemen are using the bucket trucks in the field they won't have to use the engine to lift the bucket.
The company says the truck will pay for itself in two years and the added safety makes it even more valuable.
Entergy is buying at least 14 similar trucks for its service area during the next year.
