Hawaiian Electric submits energy plan

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) Hawaiian Electric Co. has filed an ambitious plan to have 65 percent of its power come from renewable energy within 16 years.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports the plan was filed late Tuesday with the Public Utilities Commission. The company was under orders from the state agency to reduce energy costs and accommodate more solar power and other renewable energy on the grid. The plan was submitted just minutes before the deadline.

The plan would cut customer bills by 20 percent. Hawaiian Electric wants to nearly triple the amount of solar power by 2030. However, the plan outlines increased costs for residents using solar power.

Hawaii News Now reports the commission will review the filing to determine if the plan is consistent its earlier order and the state's energy goals.
