Better Place Installs First Charging Locations in U.S.

Better Place, Shai Agassi's electric vehicle services company, installed its first set of charging locations in the United States. Through a partnership with a hotelier in Hawaii, the company put in 10 charging spots across Oahu, which will service a small fleet of seven cars. The Hawaii Natural Energy Institute of the University of Hawaii will use the pilot installation to "track usage, recharge performance, and grid and driver behavior," Better Place says. If you want to take a ride in one of the cars, you'll have to stay at one of the joints run by Kyo-ya Hotels like the Sheraton Waikiki, and hope they deem you a VIP.
