The Big Island Community Coalition is determined to make Big Island electricity rates the lowest in the state.
After all, we have the best combination of renewable resources here on the Big Island. It will proactively weigh in wherever electricity rates are involved.
The fundamental problem with the Hawaii Clean Energy Initiative is that it does not require that the electric utility choose lower cost solutions. It does not take into consideration the rubbah slippah folks.
Two-thirds of our economy is made up of consumer spending. If in place of expensive electricity we had affordable electricity, businesses would grow, farmers would farm and we would not be sending our children to the mainland to look for jobs.
