HELCO, the Big Island’s primary electric provider, with Pres Jay Ignacio and incoming Pres Sharon Suzuki

The summer 2018 lava flow took out 940 HELCO customers, destroyed facilities, and disrupted power formerly being provided by Puna Geothermal.  Where does HELCO stand relative to restoring power, as needed?  Is there enough power to serve the island?  Where are we in achieving 100% renewable resources?  President Jay Ignacio and host Sherry Bracken talk about these and other issues, including Mr. Ignacio’s impending retirement. And we meet Maui Electric President Sharon Suzuki, who will also lead HELCO.
