A bill to impose fines for owners of parking lots who fail to provide a minimum of one exclusive space equipped with an electric vehicle charging station is advancing in the Hawaii Senate.

Under its current wording, Senate Bill 2651 would apply to parking lots with 100 spaces or more, and would go into effect on Jan. 1, 2015.

The measure would establish fines of $1,000 for the first violation, which would increase to $5,000 for the second violation and then double for a third infraction. Any subsequent violations would bring a fine of $20,000.
