Lanai, Nukes & More from the HVCA Energy Forum

We’ll make this multi-topic post short so our previous one doesn’t slide down and off your computer screen (please read it). Both the Star-Bulletin and Advertiser have had stories this weekend on local concerns about David Murdock’s proposed big windfarm on the island of Lanai ("Corky" captures the mood in his S-B cartoon, right). The stories are an excuse to reprise our earlier comments on OTEC’s potential for Lanai (1, 2, 3 and 4).

Our enthusiasm continues over HECO’s statements on ocean technology set-asides delivered last week at the HVCA. The group tapes its programs; click here to watch the August 28th meeting (listed as 8/31) -- especially Robbie Alm’s comments near the end. Finally, nuclear power raised its (ugly) head again in a Star-Bulletin letter yesterday. In the spirit of Labor Day, we’ll let our earlier comments suffice on that renewable energy. Enjoy the holiday.
