Electrification of Transportation Strategic Roadmap

Electric vehicles ("EVs") play a growing role in reducing our dependency on fossil fuel and protecting our environment. Driving or riding in an EV for the first time may be a surprise. These cars are quiet, quick and fun. Among the benefits EV owners enjoy:

Personal:

  • Federal tax credit up to $7,500 for an EV purchase
  • Lower fuel and maintenance costs. Even at today's low gas prices, charging an electric vehicle at home on the typical residential rate may save about 35 percent of fuel costs, compared to a similar-sized gasoline-powered sedan
  • Enrolling in a special time-of-use electric rate may further reduce total home energy costs for charging at certain times of day
  • Free parking in state and municipal lots and street spaces plus access to high-occupancy lanes with only the river on board
  • Being at the cutting edge of automotive and green vehicle technology

Community:

  • Promoting a clean energy future for Hawaii as clean, renewable energy is increasingly added to the grid
  • Reducing need for imported oil
  • Reducing fossil fuel emissions and noise pollution
