HONOLULU, Hawaii – A new bill that would force new homes built in Hawaii to have electric vehicle charging systems is getting a hearing Thursday before a joint state senate committee.
SB 2199 “Prohibits issuance of building permits beginning 1/1/2016 for new residential single-family dwellings without wiring for electric vehicle charging systems that provide level two charging or 240-volt alternating current charging.”
The bill notes that nothing shall “preclude any county from establishing procedures and standards required to implement this section.”
The hearing is set for 2:45 p.m. in Conference Room 225.
