Hawaii kills undersea power cable bill  

Credit:  Associated Press, www.forbes.com 6 May 2011 ~~

HONOLULU – Hawaii lawmakers aren’t passing legislation that would have helped clear the way for construction of an undersea electricity cable between Hawaii’s islands.

The measure would have made electricity customers pay the bill for the unknown cost of the planned cable connecting proposed wind farms on islands of Molokai and Lanai to the population center in Honolulu.

It also aimed to establish rules for constructing the cable, allowing the electric utility to collect surcharges from ratepayers for cable installation, buy the cable after it’s built and work with the Public Utilities Commission to develop the project.

The legislation stalled in conference committee last week and died for the year when the Legislature adjourned Thursday without taking further action.
