Maui Electric Company will host a public meeting to provide an update on plans for the Maalaea-Kamalii Transmission Line Project.

The purpose of the project is to ensure the reliability of electrical service for the South Maui Area.

The meeting will be held on Tuesday, December 13, 2011 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Kamalii Elementary School Cafeteria in Kihei.


The public is encouraged to attend and provide comments.

MECO held meetings last year to discuss alternative routes for a new 69 kV transmission line between Maalaea Power Plant and South Kihei.

According to an evaluation study on the proposed 69kV Kihei Transmission Line published last year, MECO officials said the project was intended to provide the infrastructural support necessary to meet the growing needs of the South Maui Community.
