The Hawaii Public Utility Commission (PUC) is authorized to establish an EV charging station rebate program. The PUC may contract with a third-party, non-government entity to administer, operate, and manage the rebate program. The EV charging station rebate program may award up to $500,000 annually. The Hawaii Legislature established a special fund within the PUC to support the EV Charging Station Rebate Program. The special fund receives $0.03 of the tax collected from each barrel of petroleum product sold by a distributor to any retail dealer or end user in Hawaii. (Reference House Bill 1142, 2021, and Hawaii Revised Statutes 269-72 and 269-73)
