Maybe the lack of calls from the North Shore is testament to the community relations work being done by First Wind and West Wind Works, which intend to build farms of 30 and 25 megawatts respectively not far from Kahuku town.
Noelani Kalipi of First Wind said construction is slated for the spring if the company's permitting goes according to plan, with full operation anticipated by December 2010. West Wind Works’ Keith Avery also has hopes for a speedy resolution of its processes. (We forgot the camera, so there's no traditional in-studio photo at the top of this post.)
