Environmental Impact Study

Pending government approval, PGV and Hawaiian Electric have negotiated an amended contract that will regulate power generation at the PGV plant through the year 2052. The Public Utilities Commission, in conjunction with the County of Hawai‘i Planning Department, have requested that PGV prepare an environmental impact statement (EIS) in conjunction with consideration of the new contract. The first step in the EIS process is the preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement Preparation Notice (EISPN).

A community meeting will be held on Wednesday, August 17th from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Pahoa Neighborhood Center, 15-2906 Pahoa Village Road, Pāhoa, HI 96778. At the meeting, the public can submit comments on the EISPN. For more ways to comment, see link below.
