Hawaii, thanks to the leadership of Gov. Linda Lingle, is going to commit to a grid of electric car recharging stations across the state. Ted Peck, energy official for Hawaii, said, "We want to get off oil."
The state has partnered with Better Place LLC, a California company which already has signed agreements with Nissan, Denmark, Israel, Australia, and California. They will install thousands of stations throughout Hawaii in 2009, laying the groundwork for large-scale electric car use by 2012.
The company also has designed an electric car, shown here in Honolulu.
