June 13, 2018, 12:29 PM HST (Updated June 13, 2018, 12:29 PM)

The Hawai‘i Public Utilities Commission has requested that the Hawaiian Electric Companies file their Electrification of Transportation Strategic Roadmap (“EoT Roadmap”) with the Commission. The EoT Roadmap describes the HECO Companies’ strategy to support a transition of Hawai‘i’s ground transportation system from fossil-fuel dependence to one based on an abundance of renewable energy.

Electrification of transportation may provide significant opportunities and benefits for Hawai‘i residents and businesses. Smartly designed and implemented, a Hawai‘i-specific EoT strategy will complement the State’s existing energy policy goals, driving greater cleanenergy impacts, and enhanced customer value. The Commission intends to ensure that the EoT Roadmap is given sufficient review with participation from key stakeholders and the general public.

The EoT Roadmap outlines several initiatives which aim to accelerate electric vehicle adoption in Hawai’i. Electrification of transportation, including the HECO Companies’ potential role and efforts related to electrification of transportation, are subjects that may be of considerable interest to the general public; county, state, and federal entities; and a variety of other stakeholders. The Commission invites all interested parties to submit public comments regarding the HECO Companies’ EoT Roadmap. The Commission has opened Docket No. 2018-0135 to serve as a repository for the EoT Roadmap and any comments from the public.
