Thanks to a $2.6 million dollar stimulus boost, Hawaii is now embarking on an ambitious plan to install EV charging stations across the island. To accomplish the job, AeroVironment and Better Living, together with four other companies, have been contracted to oversee the EV proliferation.
This isn’t the first time AeroVironment has grabbed our attention here at Geeky Gadgets. The technology company is renowned for its cutting edge innovations in robotics and other awesomeness. AeroVironment ‘s job in Hawaii involves their portable EV stations that, once in place, are expected to put a minimal strain on energy infrastructure.
All four islands of Hawaii, Oahu, Maui, and Kauai are the places where AeroVironment will be most active as it installs charging docks for public use. The other companies involved are tasked to introduce EV car rentals and peripheral services for Hawaii’s large hospitality sector.
The scale of the effort is unprecedented, given that there are close to a million private vehicles in Hawaii and only a small fraction are EV.
