    Don’t worry, just as soon as Obama figures out how to keep the sun from setting. solar will be the solution.

    Hmmm. HECO demands that those installing solar pay the utility to udgrade its system? How about requiring the utility company to pay for its carbon emissions instead?

      Better that Hawaii should pay HECO for all that extra CO2 that it contributes to the local environment to help things get greener. CO2 being the primary food for plants.

        Fear not. Thanks to China, CO2 levels in HI are at record levels. It’s a little-known fact that the USA “fixes” a great deal of China’s emissions.

    Solar power cannot hold its own in a free market. It has been “arriving” since the 1970’s and still needs government to coerce “customers” to buy it. Coal, natural gas and nuclear power plants are much more economical electricity providers.

    Ultimately green energy mandates are about control of citizens for the “sake of control” and not saving the earth for imaginary perils.
