Electric Vehicle Charging And Energy Storage Are Ideal Grid Allies

Greenlots and Hawaiian Electric Company have demonstrated how an electric vehicle (EV) fast charger combined with energy storage can support Electric Vehicle (EV) initiatives, significantly increasing EV drivers’ “range confidence”. An innovative fast charger allows electric vehicle owners to get up to an 80 percent charge in as little as 30 minutes. Drivers can easily locate the fast-charge stations and charge using the Greenlots mobile app and pay for a charge through the app or by using a credit card, much as at a self-service petrol/gasoline pump.
