Hawaiian Electric Opens Three electric vehicle fast chargers on Maui
December 21, 2020 - Three new electric vehicle fast-charging stations are now open to the public at the Queen Kaʻahumanu Center in Central Maui, Piʻilani Village Shopping Center in South Maui and Lahaina Aquatic Center in West Maui, Hawaiian Electric announced today.
Owned and operated by Hawaiian Electric, the publicly-accessible DC fast chargers offer a lower rate during daytime hours to encourage charging when solar energy is typically abundant.
The EV-Maui charging rate is $0.28 per kilowatt-hour between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.; $0.40 per kWh between 5 p.m. and 10 p.m.; and $0.38 per kWh between 10 p.m. and 9 a.m.
The company previously brought another fast-charging station online in August with the EV-Maui rate at the Pukalani Terrace Center in Upcountry Maui.
The company reports that the four completed sites were selected to cover a broad geographic driving range around the island and previously accommodated aging charging infrastructure for the members-only EVohana program that was retired in July 2020.
