HONOLULU, July 14 (UPI) -- A 30-megawatt wind farm on the Hawaiian island of Oahu will reduce oil consumption by nearly 140,00 barrels per day, a company said.
U.S. wind energy company First Wind broke ground on the Kahuku Wind project on Oahu's north shore. The project could provide enough renewable energy to power more than 7,000 homes and reduce oil consumption by as much as 139,500 bpd, the company said in a statement.
Hawaii Gov. Linda Lingle, a Republican, said the project would help the state meet its goal of getting 70 percent of its energy for electricity and ground transportation by 2030. More >>>

Conservation Law Meetings
The Department of Environment is hosting a series of public meetings over the next two weeks so that everyone will have a chance to hear about the proposed (draft) National Conservation Law and have any questions they may have answered. Please, read the Law (and the guide if you have any questions) then come to the meetings and make sure you tell us (using the feedback forms on this website or at the meetings) what you think of the law. It will be up to the public whether this Law goes further than the drafting stage.
