LIHU‘E — Keeping members informed and soliciting community feedback on the West Kaua‘i Energy Project is the intent of a series of monthly community meetings starting Tuesday, Aug. 10 at 4:30 p.m., at the Kekaha Neighborhood Center.
“Everyone is welcome to attend,” said Kaua‘i Island Utility Cooperative President and CEO David Bissell. “There’ll be no set agenda. We’ll share updates on WKEP and answer questions. The goal is to create an ongoing and open dialogue on this important project.”
WKEP is an innovative, pumped-storage hydroelectric and irrigation facility coupled with solar and battery storage being undertaken by KIUC and its renewable energy partner, AES.
Talk Story Tuesday, hosted jointly by KIUC and AES, is scheduled the second Tuesday of each month at 4:30 p.m., alternating between Kekaha and Waimea. A meeting location for Waimea on Tuesday, Sept. 14 has yet to be determined.
