August 1, 2013
Maui Weekly

The State of Hawai'i has launched a new mobile application (app) designed to help electric vehicle (EV) drivers locate publically available charging stations statewide. The free "EV Stations Hawai'i" app is available for Apple and Android smartphones and mobile devices.

"The EV Stations Hawai'i app is a great example of our state using new technology to advance the widespread use of electric vehicles in Hawai'i," said Gov. Neil Abercrombie. "Convenience is key to further the adoption of EVs, which are part of Hawai'i's clean transportation future and move us toward reducing our dependency on imported oil."

The app provides drivers with locations and mapping directions for all four counties.

"We hope the user-friendly app will help to deflate any range anxiety EV drivers may have by conveniently providing them with public charging station locations on-the-go," said State Energy Administrator Mark Glick.

The State Energy Office's database of public EV charging stations is also available online at electricvehicle.hawaii.gov. Property owners or managers with an EV charging station can complete the form found on this site to add their charging station details to the database.
