 Hawaii SB2747/Act 089, signed into law April 27, 2012

Electric Vehicles are an excellent match for Oahu’s short commuting distances and can reduce fuel per
mile costs by 35% or more.

Electric vehicles are charged at three power levels: Level 1 (120 volts) Level 2 (208-240 volts) and Level 3 (400 volts DC) with corresponding 50% recharge times of 16 hours, 4 hours, and 15 minutes.

Boss Enertech has installed over 1 megawatt of Level 2 charging station capacity on Oahu. Station types are Pay to Use, Permission to Use, and Free to Use. Locations include the State Capitol, hotels, shopping malls, businesses, residences, and schools.

In June 2012, we installed the first Level 3 stations on Oahu (Waikiki, Kailua, and Waipio-Gentry)
