Ulupono Initiative has invested $175,000 in Volta Industries to help expand its Hawaii network of electric vehicle (EV) charging stations. This investment will help Volta more than double its current network in Hawaii with 15 new free-to‐use charging stations planned for 2013 statewide. To date, Volta and its sponsors have given away more than 120,000 miles of free charging to Hawaii EV drivers.
The Local Food Coalition (LFC) brings together farmers, ranchers, livestock producers, investors, food manufacturers and other leading organizations, who collectively manage more than 1 million acres of land, and produce the majority of food in our state. Solving our challenge of increasing the local food supply — putting more local food on local plates — can best be accomplished by bringing people and organizations together who can work on the entire food value chain in a systematic way.
