For The Record: KIUC Newsletter and Anahola Solar

Posted on Oct 11, 2013 in Media Releases


The Department of Hawaiian Home Lands recently received calls and email regarding a recent newsletter issued by the Kauai Island Utility Cooperative. (See Below)

We would like to take this opportunity to clarify our understanding of the matter.

The newsletter or email spoke of KIUC’s solar array groundbreaking planned in November in Koloa, Kauai as well as brief blurbs on: 1) islandwide meetings on a single day in November to discuss KIUC’s 2013-2025 Strategic Plan, 2) the proposed solar project on Hawaiian Homes Lands in Anahola; 3) Hydroelectric, 4) Biomass, and 5) Renewable Portfolio Standards.

We understand that the single day Strategic Plan meetings planned for Waimea, Hanalei and Lihue are not specifically related to the proposed Anahola solar project.
