Electric Car Charging Stations Coming to Honolulu

Better Place

The chicken-or-egg debate over electric cars and the public charging spots needed to power them is soon to be unscrambled in Hawaii.

Better Place of Palo Alto, Calif., said this week that it will build 10 public charging stations and roll out a small fleet of electric cars in Honolulu in early 2011. At the moment, there are no public charging stations for electric vehicles in the state, a step considered critical to creating a market for electric cars.
