    Segment Transcript

    I’m Laura Reynolds with CarPro.com.  General Motors'  GM Energy includes Ultium Home, Ultium Commercial and Ultium Charge 3-60. GM Vice President Head of Battery Solutions Mark Bole talks about how GM is partnering with local utility companies. Bole: "The other important aspect of this is the utilities that we're working with. Utilities are obviously important providers of electricity, they're managing the electric grid and you know we are working across the entire U.S. with a number of utilities already on pilot programs to help develop this ecosystem and this seamless approach for our customers that I'm describing.  We'll be working with utilities going forward. Maybe there's a specific program that works for you in Texas that would never work in Florida or California.  For our customers in California and Florida,  again working with local utilities as partners to put the right program in place for our customers and so it's important across this entire ecosystem that GM is working with many companies today and again working on these pilot programs to continue to develop the products and services that will work with you as a customer."
