Wind project developer wants data kept secret  

Credit:  Lanai wind project developer seeks confidentiality | By Star-Advertiser Staff | August 13, 2013 | www.staradvertiser.com By Alan Yonan Jr. | August 14, 2013 | www.staradvertiser.com ~~

The developer of a proposed wind energy project on Lanai has asked the state Public Utilities Commission for permission to keep confidential some of the information it will be submitting as part of a regulatory review of the project.

Lawyers for Castle & Cooke Properties Inc. filed the “protective order” request on Monday, saying the company anticipated submitting documents that could “disadvantage Castle & Cooke by revealing confidential proprietary information to its competitors and/or to entities with whom it may seek to negotiate arms-length business transactions.”

The PUC in July opened a new docket to review the progress of Castle & Cooke’s original proposal submitted in 2008 to develop a 200 megawatt wind energy project on Lanai and have the electricity transmitted to Oahu via an undersea cable.

At least seven entities, including two energy developers, two community groups, a renewable energy organization and a two private citizens, have filed requests with the PUC to intervene in the docket. If approved as interveners, those entities would have access to confidential information covered by the protective order.

Castle & Cooke has opposed all intervention requests except for one filed by Hawaii Interisland Cable. HIC is a joint venture between Honolulu-based Bio-Logical Capital and San Fransisco-based Pattern Energy Group formed to “explore the opportunity to interconnect Hawaiian Islands via electric transmission cable systems in a responsible manner,” according to the company’s website.
