POSTED:



 

Hawaiian Electric Co. will proceed with testing of biofuel blends at the Kahe Power Plant.

The testing was approved by the state Public Utilities Commission as "part of our continuing effort to switch Hawaii from 'black' fuel to 'green' fuel for electricity," said Robbie Alm, HECO executive vice president, in a statement.

The blends will be tested in a 90-megawatt steam turbine generating unit that currently runs on low-sulfur fuel oil, the company announced.
