Find creative ways to use state’s natural energy

I recently read that much of the energy produced by the windmills on Maui just goes to waste (The Maui News, July 10). If this is true, it is unacceptable. Shouldn’t we be trying to make use of all the energy that our state can naturally produce?

Maui needs to start thinking about the future and creative ways to use its natural energy. An idea circulating is the construction of an underwater cable to connect the islands and share this wasted energy.

If there is no ecological impact to the islands, I think this idea should be implemented.
