The American South may not be the first place you think of when it comes to EVs, but two Southern utility companies -- Florida Power & Light and Duke Energy -- have both announced that by 2020, every vehicle purchased for their combined 10,000-vehicle fleet will either be a plug-in hybrid or an all-electric EV. That's great news for manufacturers and for EV-enthusiasts, since the companies' purchases will likely spur sales among other companies and individuals. Which is probably what FPL and Duke are hoping, since they'll be the one selling the juice to power 'em all up. [NYTimes]
