Hawaiian Electric Seeks Public Comment on ‘Integrated Resource Planning’


According to the PUC, “The goal of integrated resource planning is to develop an Action Plan that governs how the utility will meet energy objectives and customer energy needs consistent with state energy policies and goals, while providing safe and reliable utility service at a reasonable cost, through the development of Resource Plans and Scenarios of possible futures that provide a broader long-term perspective.”

Scenarios under development for Hawaii’s energy future are described in detail among the complete Integrated Resource Planning documents available on-line at In brief, the scenarios are:

·Blazing a Bold Frontier: High oil prices and policies supporting clean energy resources

·Stuck in the Middle: Moderate but growing oil prices with uncertain public policy regarding clean energy resource and infrastructure implementation

·No Burning Desire: Lower oil prices with waning policy support for clean energy

·Moved by Passion: Moderate but growing oil prices with aggressive clean energy policies

The utilities will consider comments in preparation of energy resource action plans that will be presented for further public comment in the spring of 2013.
