Hawaiian Electric eyeing new solar, wind projects
Hawaii News Now
HONOLULU (AP) – Hawaiian Electric Co. is asking the Public Utilities Commission for the authority to negotiate five new solar and wind energy power contracts.

Russell Roberts‘s insight:

This is only the beginning step in weaning ourselves from our oil addiction.  More must be done to make Hawaii energy self-sufficient.  The shift will be costly.  But, finding ways to avoid the oil chaos in the Middle East is worth a try.  Aloha, Russ.
