HELCO to offer cheaper off-peak charging rates for electric vehicles


Hawaii Electric Light Company has pilot electric vehicle (EV) charging rates available. The rates are designed to help promote EVs and encourage charging during off-peak hours. Customers who sign up for the optional time-of-use rates are offered lower rates from 9:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. Charging during off-peak hours helps us take advantage of more off-peak renewable resources and avoid running more expensive diesel generators during peak, high-demand periods.

The pilot EV rates are available to 300 customers who plan to charge highway-capable, four-wheeled electric vehicles. The rates will remain in effect for about two more years. For more information about the EV rate program, visit or email
