Joint Office celebrates the first NEVI-funded EV chargers in Hawaii.

The Joint Office of Energy and Transportation (Joint Office) recently announced the opening of the first EV charging station funded by the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program on the island of Maui. The four 150-kW chargers at the Kahului Park and Ride on Kuihelani Highway represent an important step forward for Hawaii and the entire nation’s historic transition to electric vehicles.

The Hawai’i Department of Transportation has shown its commitment to the NEVI program with plans for stations on Oahu, Hawaii, and Kauai and has accepted a total of $17.7 million in funding to make it happen.

“The Joint Office looks forward to Hawaii’s continued progress, and to the fundamental changes these stations will make in the state,” said Joint Office Executive Director, Gabe Klein. “The creation of these charging stations will bridge long distance gaps and provide reliable charging options in densely populated areas for travelers and locals alike.”

The Joint Office is working with all 50 states, Washington D.C., and Puerto Rico to ensure the success of the NEVI program. For more updates, visit the Joint Office's website.
