HI: Utilities file to extend EV program


Hawaii’s electric utilities have proposed to extend by 10 years an existing five-year pilot program for public EV-charging facilities. The current program is set to expire June 30, 2018; the HECO companies have requested to extend the expiration date to June 30, 2028. The current program includes a tariff prescribing the manner and rates of the utilities’ sale of electricity to 3rd-party operators of public charging facilities. The utilities are also pursuing strategic host site locations to host DC fast chargers.
