Thanks for that information Doug! I didn't know that so many companies were part of that "movement". I have a feeling that we may see a new generation of them in the near future.

It is amazing how many were involved in the old electrics. Just like caseguy mentioned I am sure we are well on our way to seeing a new movement of electrics.
