That info is awesome, thank you.
The idea that got the wheels spinning of EV's still using fossil fuels was cause of the recent pipeline attack. So if there was a fossil fuel disruption in HI, EV's and gas would be both screwed. And our power grid would be too.
Many (not sure how many) EV owners also have solar at home and their businesses. They can recharge without using expensive HECO electricity.
Doesn't help the ones who require public recharging stations, but I know at least 2 EV owners who have chargers at home. They normally us the free chargers at work during the week, but then use their solar on the weekends/non-work-days.
My daughter drives a Prius Hybrid. Recharging is accomplished with kinetic energy from the brakes and from the engine when running on gasoline. No charging port at all. In order to run 100% battery, she needs to stay below 25MPH, IIRC. The newer Prius has a charging port and can operate as a "regular" EV at highway speeds with no gas being burned.
More than one issue, and more than one solution available.
