The Kula Lodge DCFC is in the process of being installed right now, which will make Haleakala accessible. The Jump Smart Maui plan is to have a DCFC in Hana, a DCFC half way to Hana & several upcountry, with a total of 20 DCFC stations with 4 charge ports per station, which will make all of Maui accessible by 100% EV's. Originally the plan was to have all 20 stations installed by the end of 2013, so hopefully the remaining stations will be installed by the end of 2014. Our local electric company is also installing 2 DCFC, one at their headquarters in kahului & another one to be determined.
The map doesn't show any L1 sites in Hana, but I assume that someone has charged out there successfully. Any knowledge on this Shaun?
We rented our Leaf to someone who stayed at a B&B that allowed her to charge & we also rented our Volt to a local musician who L1 charged at Travaasa Hana hotel & wrote about it here http://joelkatzmaui.com/2012/08/electric-car-to-travaasa-hana-gig/
