UPC Wind will address Governor’s Council on Molokai  

Noelani Kalipi, director of government and community relations for UPC Hawai‘i Wind Partners, will brief the council on the company’s wind farm proposal for Molokai as part of an effort to decrease Hawai‘i’s reliance on fossil fuels by increasing wind energy generation. UPC Hawai‘i Wind developed and operates Hawai‘i’s largest utility-scale wind farm, Kaheawa Wind Power on Maui, which supplies power to Maui Electric Company.

Governor Linda Lingle created community advisory councils to give the neighbor islands a stronger voice in state government. The Molokai Community Advisory Council holds monthly public meetings on the third Tuesday of each month to seek community input and advise the Governor of important issues on Molokai. The council also recommends potential nominees for state boards and commissions.

The Governor’s Molokai Community Advisory Council will meet on Tuesday, October 16, 2007, 3:00 p.m. at the Kulana O‘iwi, DHHL / OHA Conference Room, 600 Maunaloa Highway in Kaunakakai. The public is invited.

The members of the Governor’s Molokai Community Advisory Council are Robert Granger, Janice Kalanihuia, Jersula Manaba, Marlene Purdy and Weldon Wichman.

Anyone requiring special assistance or accommodations to participate at this meeting may call (808) 586-0034. For additional information on Neighbor Island Community Advisory Councils, including meeting minutes and agendas, visit the Governor’s Web site at www.hawaii.gov/gov.
