SAIC Takes On Hawaii Energy Efficiency Program

SAIC's Ray Starling will discuss Hawaii's energy efficiency program.
Next Monday’s Energy Futures show on Hawaii Public Radio (8/24) will provide an in-depth look at the new manager’s plans for the program that’s supposed to help guide Hawaii to a clean energy future.

Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) assumed responsibility for the Hawaii Energy Efficiency Program from Hawaiian Electric Company on July 1. SAIC won the contract to run the efficiency program after the State Legislature determined an independent third party would be a more appropriate administrator than the electric utility.

SAIC’s Ray Starling will be our guest on Energy Futures to outline the program, which includes rebates for energy efficiency initiatives among utility customers. The show will be broadcast at 5 pm Monday August 24 on KIPO-FM (89.3 in Hawaii) and streamed on the Internet. We'll take your calls at 941-3689 on Oahu and 1-877-941-3689 from the neighbor islands.

If you missed our August 17th show and the interview with Dr. Stephen Schneider of the Nobel Peace Prize-winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, you can listen to the archived show at HPR’s website. Schneider’s one-hour stream of consciousness on climate change and global warming is sure to fill at least one puka in your knowledge base on these important issues.
