Attention Hawaii Residents – We Want to Hear From You! July 20th 2023 @ 3:00pm

The Hawaii Public Utilities Commission (PUC) is hosting a virtual meeting to discuss the proposed workplan on Energy Equity.

Energy equity refers to the goal of achieving equity in both the social and economic participation in the energy system, while also remediating social, economic, and health burdens on those historically harmed by the energy system. The Hawaii Public Utilities Commission strives not only to address energy equity generally, but to ensure that existing energy inequity is not exacerbated or overlooked during the renewable energy transition.

The Hawaii Public Utilities Commission opened Docket No. 2022-0250 to investigate how to better integrate equity and justice considerations across Commission proceedings and the Commission’s work more broadly, including in its role overseeing and regulating the functions of public utilities. The Commission also notes that regulatory processes can be challenging to access and will use this webpage to provide regular updates on its progress in Docket No. 2022-0250.

The Public Utilities Commission will host two virtual meetings to discuss the proposed workplan on energy equity.  

The PUC is particularly interested in hearing from communities that host energy facilities, people with a high energy burden, and people that do not typically participate in Commission dockets.

The events will begin virtually on July 6th 2023 from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm and another virtual meeting on July 20th 2023 from 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm
