October (various), DBEDT Public Workshops on Utility Ownership

Posted on Sep 29, 2017 in Upcoming Events

The Hawaii legislature has directed the Department of Business, Economic Development & Tourism (DBEDT) to undertake a study on the future of utility ownership models in Hawaii. As a part of this study, London Economics International and Meister Consultants Group invite you to share your thoughts and input on the future of electricity utility ownership and the role a utility plays in achieving state energy goals, including achieving 100% renewable energy and minimizing rate increases.

Public workshops will be held the week of October 9th on each island to speak with residents willing to share their thoughts on future electric utility ownership and the role the utility plays in achieving community and state goals. RSVPs are requested. Please see dates and locations below.
