DHHL approves 60-acre solar farm in Anahola

LIHUE >> Kauai's utility plans to build a $54 million solar power project on 60 acres in Anahola.

The Kauai Island Utility Cooperative says the 12-megawatt solar project will power 4,000 homes.

It's expected to supply 20 percent of Kauai's electricity during daylight hours. It will also provide five percent of Kauai's annual electricity needs.

The utility said Friday its board and members of the Hawaiian Homes Commission voted to approve the terms of a 25-year lease for the land under the project.

Ownership of the solar array will transfer to the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands after 25 years.

The utility has committed to using renewable resources to generate 50 percent of its energy by 2023.

Mr. Wm. Aila....your Department of Natural Resources has illegally issued fishing licenses to illegal aliens that are used as slaves. How can you live with yourself, Bill. Then to cover the entire matter up by instructing your employees that they are not allowed to speak to the media about the number of license that are issues in bulk to justify slavery. Corruption, Director Bill Aila...simple and in your face. I expected so much more from you. You were once a man of character and substance. Now you are an empty slave trading vessel (pun intended). I once thought that you would eventually be the perfect man for the Hawaiian Homes Commission. You are unable to follow the law in the issuance of fishing licenses. I would never trust you with the health and well being of the Native Hawaii Community. Don Quixote an the windmills. Read the book dear friend from Waianae. I did in the 9th grade. Learned something from Miguel de Cervantes the man from La Mancha.
