HECO cancels call for customers to cut energy use


Hawaiian Electric Co. has cancelled its call for consumers to conserve electricity from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., saying a power plant that had gone down has been partially repaired and is generating electricity again.

“Partial repairs to a power plant owned by independent power producer Kalaeloa Partners were completed late Thursday evening. This provides greater generating reserves which will allow customers to resume their normal use of electricity,” HECO said in a statement Friday.

 Twice this month, HECO had asked customers to conserve energy during the peak usage period due in part to the unexpected shutdown of the Kalaeloa plant.
