Welcome to Maui Electric Vehicle Alliance

The Maui Electric Vehicle Alliance, a.k.a. Maui EVA, is the name of the project funded by the Department of Energy from October 2011 to January 2014 to develop an EV-readiness plan for Maui County. Our initial vision was to give our millions of visitors the experience of EVs in Paradise. Here are ten reasons why Maui is perfect for that. UHMC shared this $300k grant with subawardees DBEDT, Honolulu Clean Cities, and UC San Diego. The project has been further supported by 14 cost-share partners and numerous stakeholders that took part in the meetings and activities during this period.
