On May 26, 2021, ENGIE Hawai’i held a Town Hall on Nā Leo TV to discuss the state of clean energy on Hawaiʻi Island and proposed solar + energy storage project near Puakō. Hear from the project team as well as viewer questions taken on the air in this video:
Our project was selected by Hawaiian Electric to be part of the largest expansion of renewable energy in their history, and is now being reviewed by the Public Utilities Commission. We are also working to complete the environmental studies and reports required by federal, state, and county government. Should this review be successful and the project moves forward, we will continue to engage the community as we complete the governmental regulatory process to build.
