Aloha Petroleum Ltd. is installing "fast chargers" at three gas stations on Oahu that can top off an electric vehicle battery in 30 minutes or less.

The chargers, made by AeroVironment EV Solutions, will be available to the public beginning Wednesday at Aloha Island Mart Kahala, Aloha Island Mart Waipio-Gentry and the Kailua Shell.

The chargers will be available to the public for free for a limited period, according to Aloha Petroleum. Officials from Aloha Petroleum, AeroVironment, Hawaiian Electric Co., and state government are scheduled to attend a dedication ceremony at 10 a.m. Wednesday at the Aloha Island Mart Kahala.

The Level 3 units being installed are fed by a 480-volt line capable of charging an electric vehicle about 10 times faster than the 240-volt Level 2 chargers normally found at public charge spots.
