Civil Beat gets a “B”
# # #
Beside the fact that Hawaii's clean energy policy is not really aggressive because they are moving too slowly. I can think of a number of states moving much more quickly than Hawaii. Soon they won't be able to get the financing to do what they want to do. Energy policy over the past 2 years in Hawaii has been an abysmal failure. BTW, whatever happened to Schatz's Office of Federal Maximization?
Actually Mauibrad, Hawaii is moving too aggressively with ratepayers & taxpayers being economically raped. Read, e.g., Hawaii Free Press' "Hawaii Wind, Solar projects: Millions for Wall Street, Banks, maybe even Big Tobacco" (September 25, 2011) & "Why Stop at $500K? DoTAX Quietly Multiplies Hawaii Solar Tax Credit" (October 3, 2011). What is happening is not right, not pono.
It's hard to trust anything found in the "Hawaii Free Press", as it's aggressively anti-democratic and aggressively pro-republican....
"Hawaii Free Press" may be aggressively pro-republican (definitely I am *not*) but I found the articles credible (if only because merchant banker Larry Gilbert and solar industry lobbyist Mark Duda said the same on Jay Fidell's ThinkTech interviews [if you like I could dig up the video links]).
Note that on Friday "Hawaii Free Press" published an article by Henry Curtis.
