100% Clean Electricity for all of Maui

HINA proposes to build the world's largest 100% power system,
making electricity from sun and wind and storing it in water.

With HINA, Maui Electric could achieve 100% renewable by 2020
and have the world's lowest electricity generation costs after 2030.

Today: Diesel Generators

Maui (150,000 people) spends $250 million per year on fuel and emits 600,000 tons of CO2. Not a good idea, if you love money and climate.

In Progress: Solar and Wind

Two windfarms and many PV systems produce 28% of Maui's electricity, one of the highest rates in the world, but now the grid gets full.

Next: Massive Storage

HINA combines solar and wind energy with advanced, high-tech pumped hydro storage. 57% of all energy needs to go through storage.
