State needs to be united on new energy solutions

Maui needs to start thinking about the future and creative ways to decrease our dependence on fossil fuels.

If energy is being wasted, we need to work together as a state to find a solution. An undersea cable connecting the islands is an idea we need to start exploring.

With the natural resources on the Big Island with geothermal energy and the wind farms on Oahu and Maui, as a state we could all benefit greatly – not just Oahu. If we can decrease our reliance on fossil fuels I would have to believe there would be some tax incentives for the people of Hawaii.

We need to sit down as a state and unite.
