RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — A former Michigan governor is in North Carolina to plug electric cars and job creation from clean energy.
Ex-governor Jennifer Granholm speaks in Raleigh on Tuesday at the start of a four-day conference for the electric car industry. Granholm is now an adviser to the Pew Charitable Trusts and she'll be visiting the Plug-in 2011 convention.
Granholm and other members of the charitable group aim to highlight the role clean energy can play in cleaning up pollution, spurring manufacturing, and promoting U.S. energy independence.
The conference brings together people interested in vehicle, component and infrastructure technologies for plug-in hybrid and all-electric cars.
