Awaiting updates on proposed underwater cable

Has anyone heard more about the Public Utilities Commission’s decision on whether to ask for formal bids on the underwater electrical cable between Oahu and Maui?

There seemed to be a lot of talk about improving our grid and if it was in the best interest for Maui and Oahu residents, but I haven’t seen anything more on the topic.

Every time I pay my electric bill I think about this and hope that there may be a way to reduce our electric bills.

Since there doesn’t seem to be any other options on the table, I would like to see this go to the next step and see what it would cost and if it would have an impact on our environment.
