Kylie Wager Cruz, Attorney, Mid-Pacific Office, Earthjustice: "HECO should take responsibility for the crisis it's caused and focus on ensuring [the project] realizes its full potential to maximize renewable energy on the grid and minimize Hawai'i's dependence on fossil fuels. Instead, HECO's threatening to pull the plug on the project, put all the risk on ratepayers and the grid, and make us pay for all of it either way."

Matt Vespa, Attorney, Clean Energy Program, Earthjustice: "We're in a climate crisis. We have to stop building gas infrastructure. Climate leadership isn't about incrementalism anymore. We need bold aggressive action to get off fossil fuels and this was a missed opportunity."
