    Creating a new utility, with all the expense involved, for people who are already financially hindered, does not make sense. Wind and solar projects cannot provide enough electricity to maintain the greater populations, as they exist now. They wish to de-monopolize the one utility which has been
    providing electric, for what reason? To have cheaper electric? Who is going to pay for all this great new, cheaper, cleaner power source? You would exchange one monopoly for another? Even if you could harness all that volcano heat (geo-thermal), who would pay to have it installed and kept running?
    The only ones to come out ahead here, are the lawyers. Everyone has the ability and right to go “off grid”. Pay for your own wind mill or solar panels,
    and the chance to find out what happens, when they fail. Hawaii is isolated. With so many living and depending on fossil fuels(gasoline/ oil),
    the only common sense option (for Hawaii) to maintain the current standard of living is to rely on the cheapest fossil fuel available, natural gas.
    Nat gas is cheaper, burns cleaner and can also be used to fuel cars, trucks and buses. There again, cost...Huge container ships carrying liquefied natural gas would be used to transport the gas from the mainland. If the current usage of electricity is to be maintained or increased, the Hawaiian people don’t have much other choice. HE (I believe) is currently seeking to create or replace existing oil burning facilities with Nat gas turbines/boilers. Larger facilities,
    such as hospitals, schools, shopping plaza and hotels may seek to supplement their electric supply by using gas fired micro-turbines to create power on-site.
    see: Capstone Turbines
    Try to think how it would be if suddenly there was another oil-embargo, or if the supply was suddenly cut off.
