A DO-IT-YOURSELF ELECTRIC PICKUP TRUCK: “For two weeks, Lawrence has driven the truck he converted to electric power on Madison County roads. Each night, the truck is plugged into an outlet in his garage and the batteries are charged for eight hours. By the morning it’s juiced up and ready to run between 60 and 80 miles that day. . . . Lawrence estimates he was spending $100 a week on gas before the conversion.”
