HECO plan seeks to meet state’s renewable energy goals early
Under an ambitious plan unveiled Friday, Hawaiian Electric Co. seeks to achieve the state's 100 percent renewable energy goals five years early.
The plan says all of Hawaii's power generation can be from renewable resources from 2040 with a mix of solar, wind, battery storage, and biofuels.
Meanwhile, the plan does not include the use of liquified natural gas, as an earlier plan had. The use of LNG to meet renewable energy goals had been opposed by some, including Gov. David Ige.
