State Rejects Sale Of Hawaiian Electric to NextEra Energy

“Outright rejection of the takeover was the only realistic option. NextEra refused to provide its plans for Hawaii, other than to give us a ‘bigger HECO,'” said Isaac Moriwake, staff attorney at Earthjustice. “Based on its opposition to clean energy in Florida and failure to chart a different path in this state, NextEra is not what Hawaii wants or needs.”
