Electric Car Stations in Hawaii

How can you enact a move from a gas station based fueling grid to an electric charging station based grid? Easy - start on an island. Behind this effort is Better Place, a California based start up with a vision of creating a network of charging stations for electric cars.

"California-based company Better Place will operate the stations on a subscription-based system. Owners could sign-up for a monthly plan or choose to pay as they use. The company will own the batteries, which can run upwards to $11,000, and loan them out to drivers."
