KALAELOA, HI-- Hunt Companies Inc., Hawaiʻi has selected Xeal to provide 19 public EV chargers for the state-of the-art Daniel Kahikina Akaka Department of Veterans Affairs Community-Based Outpatient Clinic in Kalaeloa. With this partnership, Xeal will introduce its EV chargers to Hawaiʻi for the first time.
“We are excited to partner with Xeal on this component of our new development,” said Thomas Lee, Senior Vice President, Hunt Companies Development Division, Hawaiʻi. “Hunt is committed to being part of a more resilient and environmentally conscious Hawaiʻi. Our 19 EV chargers will serve as a valuable resource for our veterans, their families, doctors, staff, and the West Oʻahu community.”
Xeal’s cost-efficient charging technology uses a self-reliant communication architecture — a secure and dependable option that eliminates the need for costly network infrastructure upgrades. Its user-friendly platform can be managed through an app using encrypted, token-based connectivity that circumvents unreliable Wi-Fi or cellular.
“We are excited to be working with Hunt Companies Inc., Hawaiʻi as they add EV charging to one of the nation's newest VA facilities,” said Alexander Isaacson, Co-Founder and CEO at Xeal. "Hunt’s exceptional leadership highlights the movement to make electric vehicles and EV charging accessible to everyone. Xeal is proud to offer the most reliable and secure EV charging solution to veterans, their families, and the community this clinic will call home.”
The new chargers will be installed this summer. The public can use the EV charging stations after the Daniel K. Akaka VA Clinic opens in early 2024.
