Representatives say the company wants community members to ask questions and provide feedback as part of Integrated Grid Planning (IGP), a planning process to identify options for moving Hawaiʻi toward a clean energy future.

As part of the IGP process, the company will collect public input and continue to collaborate with working groups, a stakeholder council and a technical advisory panel.

These groups attend meetings, workshops, and review data, methodologies and reports to help the company develop strategies used for long-term decision-making relating to the state’s energy landscape.

“It will take a collective effort to get to 100 percent renewables by 2045 – and Hawaiian Electric
invites community members to partner with us to help make the best choices,” the company wrote in a press release.
