App helps drivers find EV chargers

HONOLULU - A new mobile application helps the public locate electric vehicle charging stations in Hawaii.

The app provides drivers with EV charging station locations and mapping directions for all four counties.

State Energy Administrator Mark Glick said the adoption of electric vehicles is key to Hawaii's goal of 70 percent clean energy by 2030.
