Talk by Jay Ignacio, president of Hawaii Electric Light Co.

Location: UCB 100

The University of Hawai`i at Hilo Sustainability Committee invites the public to a presentation by Jay Ignacio, President of Hawai‘i Electric Light Company.

"A Clean Energy Future for Hawai`i Island"

Under Hawaii law, the renewable portfolio standard calls for 40% of electricity sales to be from renewable resources by 2030. Hawai’i Electric Light Company aims to exceed this target adding as much renewable energy possible that is affordable, safe and reliable. Since 2008, the company has doubled the percentage of electricity supplied from renewable resources across Oahu, Maui County and Hawaii Island. To fulfill the promise of these new technologies, Hawai’i Electric Light Company works in partnership with businesses, government, with other energy providers, environmental and community groups, and their customers. This is a community challenge that only a collective community effort can meet.
