+ - Hawii moves on Electric Cars->

Submitted by Gat0r30y
Gat0r30y (957941) writes "Energy costs are higher on islands. And in that spirit, islands make an ideal testing place for new energy infrastructure projects, like a fleet of all electric cars. Its a pretty interesting idea, replacing gas stations with battery swap stations. From the NYT (go to bugmenot.com to get around the stupid subscription) article:

"We always knew Hawaii would be the perfect model," he said in a telephone interview. "The typical driving plan is low and leisurely, and people are smiling."

On this note, what other energy projects would be ideally suited for an island test like this? Personally, I'd like to see a test of a breeder nuclear reactor, a full scale Hydrogen distribution network, a superconducting grid..... And as long as I'm wishing for things I'm not gonna get I want a pony too."
