A state resolution urging the state to find alternatives to industrial scale wind projects will be accepting public comments today.
As stated, HCR 189 asks the governor and the Public Utilities Commission to “seek alternatives to the industrial wind generation facilities and interisland high-voltage undersea electric transmission cable system proposed for the islands of Molokai and Lanai.”
Introduced by Rep. Mele Carroll of the 13th District which represents Molokai and Lanai, Resolution 189 expresses the message heard from Lanai and Molokai residents: no wind turbines, no undersea cable!
This resolution tells the governor, the PUC and Hawaiian Electric Company that island-specific solutions are best for our energy independence and security. The resolution clearly opposes the perpetuation of a centralized delivery of energy by an expensive undersea cable and dependence on industrial wind taken from Lanai and Molokai.
