The Garden Island - - Pau Hana Time -

LI­HUE — Howard Greene, en­vi­ron­men­tal man­ager, Gay & Robin­son, will be the guest speaker at the Li­hue Busi­ness As­so­ci­a­tion meet­ing on Sept. 28.

He will talk about plans to de­velop a new hy­dro­elec­tric plant on Kauai.

“It has been nearly a cen­tury since Kauai has seen a new large ca­pac­ity hy­dro­elec­tric plant. Gay & Robin­son is ac­tively de­vel­op­ing the next, on an ex­ist­ing ir­ri­ga­tion ditch sys­tem,” ac­cord­ing to a flier. “Its rated ca­pac­ity of 6.5 megawatts equals roughly 10 per­cent of Kauai’s av­er­age elec­tri­cal use. It should be on­line as early as next year.”
