The state Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism Energy Office has notified the state and federal governments that it plans to prepare a “programmatic environmental impact statement” for the Hawaii Interisland Renewable Energy Program.
People have until early March to comment on the proposal. For more information, visit www.hirep-wind.com.
