Hawaiian Electric and the Army are one step closer to a biofuel power plant at Schofield Barracks. The proposed 50-megawatt plant would be a source of renewable energy for Oahu residents, while also providing backup power for the military. The Army is preparing to study environmental impacts. But first, it wants to hear input from the community. HPR’s Molly Solomon has more.

Public meetings will be held:

•Feb. 5: 6:30-9 p.m., Mililani Mauka Elementary School Cafeteria, 95-1111 Makaikai St., Mililani, HI 96789.
•Feb. 6: 6:30-9 p.m., Wahiawa District Park Recreation Center, 1129 Kilani Ave. Wahiawa, HI 96786.

You can also submit written testimony through email.
