Energy Policy Forum Agenda Is Monday’s Show; Plus, We Start a Recurring Solar Energy Feature

Guests on Monday’s Energy Futures show will be the co-chairs of the Hawaii Energy Policy Forum – Sharon Miyashiro and Mike Hamnett, both of the University of Hawaii. We’ll discuss the Forum’s legislative proposals for this year’s session, which begins on January 20.

We’ll also launch a new – and we think recurring – feature on Monday’s program, a segment reserved for our listeners’ questions on solar energy and how to integrate it into their lives. The evidence of the past six months of shows is in: Listeners light up Hawaii Public Radio’s phone lines more when solar energy is the theme than for any other topic. Mark Duda (right), president of the Hawaii Solar Energy Association, will be available during the program’s third and final 20-minute segment to take callers’ questions. We’re planning to make this a feature in the 5:40 p.m. segment; we’ll promote it and see whether it has the appeal we think it will.

Energy Futures is broadcast “live” every Monday 5-6 pm HST on KIPO-FM (89.3 in Hawaii) and is streamed on the Internet. An archive file of each week’s show is usually posted sometime on Tuesday at the Hawaii Public Radio website.
