A meeting notice has gone out to discuss the Ikehu Molokai energy project to convert Molokai to 100 percent renewable electricity.
The meeting takes place at the Maunaloa Community Recreation Center this Saturday, Dec. 14, at 2 p.m.
Molokai Ranch is working with Princeton Energy Group to develop a renewable energy project, called Ikehu Molokai, to benefit the residents of Molokai.
As described in more detail at www.ikehumolokai.com, the Ikehu Molokai project’s goals include: 1. lowering and stabilizing electric rates for Molokai, 2. reducing or eliminating the carbon footprint of the island’s electric system, and, 3. strengthening the grid to avoid brownouts and blackouts. The electricity from the project will be strictly for use on the island of Molokai — there will be no connection to any undersea cable for export to Oahu.
Join Steve Taber from Princeton Energy for a community meeting to discuss the Ikehu Molokai project with the Maunaloa community. Taber will review the project details and answer questions from the community. Community involvement and feedback is a priority for the Ikehu Molokai project and critical for its success.
