  Over Thanksgiving week Hawaiian Electric announced it reached an agreement to purchase power from Eurus Energy America. The company will build and operate a windfarm on Palehua Ridge above the existing fossil fuel powerplant.

  Councilwoman Kymberly Pine released a statement yesterday afternoon expressing her concerns about the project.

Catherine Cruz we sat down in our studios with Tony Gill, and Hawaiian Electric’s Peter Rosegg to talk about the project.  We start off with Eurus’ Vice President Nick Henriksen, who joined us for the conversation from San Diego.
