Charge Up eBus Pilot
What is Charge Up eBus?
Hawaiian Electric's Charge Up eBus Pilot is designed to help bus operators reduce the upfront cost of installing charging equipment for electric buses on Oahu, Maui and Hawaii Island. As part of the Pilot, Hawaiian Electric pays for, constructs, owns and maintains all the electrical infrastructure up to the charging equipment. Bus operators purchase, install and maintain their charging equipment.
