Solar Energy Issues Dominate Listeners’ Calls

Warren Bollmeier and Mark Duda
Energy Futures started the year yesterday by provoking a good number of calls from listeners with questions on solar energy-related topics -- installation, the proposed feed-in tariff system, net metering, etc.

Most of our the answers were supplied by Mark Duda, president of the Hawaii Solar Energy Association, and Hawaii Renewable Energy Alliance president Warren Bollmeier contributed as well.

Starting the program off was Dr. Sharon Miyashiro (at left), co-chair of the Hawaii Energy Policy Forum, which will conduct a public legislative briefing at 10 -11 am Friday, January 8. Numerous energy-focused groups will have booth displays that day on the Capitol’s fourth floor.

Dr. Miyashiro and Forum co-chair Dr. Mike Hamnett will be our Energy Futures guests on January 18. The Hawaii State Legislature convenes on January 20.

Energy Futures is broadcast “live” Mondays 5-6 pm HST on KIPO-FM (89.3 in Hawaii) and also is streamed at that time at the Hawaii Public Radio website. Shows are archived for a few weeks after they’ve aired and are available online for downloading.
