Kauai Island’s KIUC electric utility cooperative’s transition to Solar+Wind+ Batteries holds the promise of greater reliability, lower operating costs, and cheaper clean energy for consumers. KIUC also represents Hawaii’s first island community on its way to 100% power self-sufficiency, with the added community bonus of producing Zero emissions and pollutants going into the local environment from power plants.
