According to dockets filed with the Hawaii state Public Utilities Commission on Wednesday, NextEra Energy Inc. (NYSE: NEE) has filed to withdraw from its ongoing projects in Hawaii.
These include the Oahu-Maui interisland transmission cable (docket 2013-0169); Castle & Cooke’s proposed Lanai Wind Project (docket 2013-0168); and power supply improvement plans underway with Hawaiian Electric Co., Hawaii Electric Light Co. and Maui Electric Co.
All three dockets cite the July 15 PUC order rejecting NextEra’s acquisition of HECO: “Consequently, NEEH no longer intends to participate in this proceeding. Accordingly, NEEH respectfully requests the Commission to grant this motion to withdraw from the proceeding.”
When queried by PBN about the status of these projects earlier this week, NextEra declined to comment.
NextEra declined to comment today on the filings as well.
