    Busting 2 myths about saving money when home charging in Hawaii

    I have completed my six month trial of the Interim Residential TOU rates. For the last six months I have saved between $50-$70 each month using around 1,200 KwH/month. This plan is definitely a keeper!

    Basic Autopilot at $2K till June 30

    I added Autopilot in 3/2019 after the price dropped from $4k to $2k. It was worth it when I drove my M3 MR from the east coast to California to ship it here. :)

    Oahu Charging Strategy - No home charger?

    Bobhilt, The HECO Fast chargers are on the OpConnect or Greenlots networks. They all take credit cards or RFID card 'swipes' (one had been broken and worked with App only).

    Oahu Charging Strategy - No home charger?

    New Chademo Adapter fails to lock

    Hello all, I just got a new Chademo adapter from Tesla to replace one I rented from QC Charge. The new one will not lock onto the Chademo plug (Efacec station with a Yazaki CHV-04 connector).
