Maui Electric Co., a wholly owned subsidiary of Hawaiian Electric Co., has chosen Greenlots' SKY network management solution to manage an open-access public electric vehicle (EV) charging station in Maui.

Greenlots, a provider of open standards-based technology solutions for EV networks, says the DC Fast Charger, supplied by ABB, will be installed at Maui Electric's Kahului offices by the end of this year and will be operational and ready for public use by the first quarter of 2014.

According to Greenlots, the SKY solution, based on Open Charge Point Protocol, allows site hosts the flexibility to mix and match hardware and software vendors to suit specific needs while providing full access to programs and the ability to monitor charging station activity.

"The DC Fast Charger at Maui Electric's Kahului office is part of a five-year pilot program to advance and encourage the adoption of more electric vehicles on the island," says Sharon Suzuki, president of Maui Electric. "Maui Electric partnered with Greenlots because the SKY Network provides an open standards platform that provides Maui's EV drivers with variable time-of-use pricing and popular smartphone payment options, including pay-by-phone services."
