A key component to reducing fuel demand and utilizing locally produced renewable energy will be a vibrant plug in electric vehicle (EV) market and Hawaii is looking toward EV’s to build a clean transportation future.
The widespread deployment of EVs in Hawaii is a key approach toward the reduction of fossil fuel dependency and Hawaii’s drivers have enthusiastically adopted EVs as their mode of transportation.
A few things you will find are:
- Federal tax credits
- Statewide database for installed EV charging stations.
- Interactive map that can help drivers pinpoint EV charging stations statewide
- EV Ready Guidebook for Commercial EV Charging Station Installations
- Contact information for parties offering EV services
The Lessons Learned report was one of the many efforts conducted under the $300,000 Department of Energy “Clean Cities Community Readiness and Planning for Plug-In-Electric Vehicles and Charging Infrastructure” grant which was awarded to the University of Hawaii Maui College in 2011.
The report captures the lessons learned from the early adopter commercial properties that installed publically available electric vehicle (EV) charging stations on Oahu. In the report you will find conducted research, evaluated data, and documented early adopter lessons learned about planning, permitting, installing, operating and maintaining charging stations
