B.S. – and yet we still have the highest electrical utility rates in the US.
Not by much, there are significant hidden taxes into nuclear power when it comes to decommissioning and disposal on the mainland that far exceed anything we pay and aren’t included in the cost of electricity so the numbers are very deceiving on the mainland. In the end, the average electric bill on Oahu is only a mere $26 higher than in Phoenix, Arizona and only $32 higher than the national average due to lower needs of energy consumption. You want the best price in the nation, go solar and cut the cord with HECO as we have great weather and sunshine to be able to do so.
As usual your post lacks credibility, no references to back up your claims Nei power costs are not that much higher than the mainland. Let me educate you again.
This site shows the Average Price of Electricity to Ultimate Customers by End-Use Sector. Pay special attention to the numbers shown for HI & AZ. Notice HI’s numbers are easily 200% and more than AZ. Proof your numbers are pure shibai.
“due to lower needs of energy consumption?” Doesn’t apply to those with larger families or homes with with central aircon. Lets not forget mainland homes have cheap natural gas water heaters, dryers and stoves. Nei homes generally have all electric appliances which really rack up the power usage.
Can’t cut the cord to HECO unless you have the home battery system which is still way above the financial ability of the average home owner.
No need to thank me for the education. It’s what I do.
Too many nay-sayers on this forum…. they think this is impossible in Hawaii.
Well guess what? 41 PERCENT
Why do I not believe these cooked book numbers?
Believe anything you want. The PUC makes sure these are accurate.
PUC? Lapdog to HECO, they lack credibility. Total vote of no confidence from everyone. Might as well just all them what they are. The HECO PUC.
Cut imported oil, ok. But what about coal?
so has the retail price of electricity gone down relative to oil imports ???? please do a study ..so they government , do not increase road taxes …
