Six new electric vehicle charging stations for public use have been installed in municipal parking structures.
The EV chargers are available at Neal Blaisdell Center, Chinatown Gateway Plaza, the Civic Center, Hale Pauahi, Honolulu Zoo, and the Smith-Beretania Parking Structure.
The stations are part of the ChargePoint network, which use a card to activate. The stations are free to use, for now, and EV drivers without cards can call the number printed on the stations for assistance.
The charging stations were installed by the City using a $400,000 Hawaii EV Ready Grant from the state Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism.
