Hawaii EV Press release: Transportation puts more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere than any other sector in the U.S. economy. In Hawaii, the percentage of transportation-related pollution is higher, representing an excess of 40% of all local greenhouse gas emissions.
Hawaii is now following a global trend in the electrification of transportation and transition off fossil fuels. If you are curious about all-electric vehicle alternatives to your gas guzzler car, SUV, or truck, then you won’t want to miss the 10th annual National Drive Electric Week (September 26 – October 4), which promises to answer your questions and excite anyone interested in driving electric.
Locally, this year’s National Drive Electric Week event will be hosted by the newly formed Hawaii EV Association (HEVA), a grassroots, multi-island, all-volunteer organization dedicated to helping Hawaii accelerate its transition to zero-emission transportation.
