UPC Wind Will Address Governor’s Council on Molokai
Noelani Kalipi, representative for UPC Hawaii Wind Partners, will brief the Molokai Community Advisory Council (MCAC) on the company’s wind farm proposal for Molokai. The project is part of an effort to decrease Hawaii’s reliance on fossil fuels by increasing wind energy generation.
UPC Wind developed and operates Hawaii’s largest utility-scale wind farm, Kaheawa Wind Power on Maui, which supplies power to Maui Electric Company.
Governor Linda Lingle created community advisory councils to give the neighbor islands a stronger voice in state government. The MCAC holds monthly public meetings to seek community input, and then advise the governor on local issues.
The public is invited to attend the MCAC meeting at Kulana `Oiwi, DHHL / OHA Conference Room, on Tuesday, Oct. 16, 2007, at 3p.m.
