There will be no school today, Monday, 25 September 2017, at Aiea Intermediate School.  An unexplained power outage over the weekend has cancelled classes at the Oahu school until the issue is resolved.

Hawaii Electric Company officials confirmed the loss of power at the school, but said none of its equipment was at fault.  The Department of Education said “the location of the issue does not fall under HECO’s jurisdiction.

Comment:

Opponents of the 6.75 solar power project in the Ocean View area of Hawaii Island claim HECO and HELCO are breaking up the large-scale energy project into smaller operations to avoid strict bidding procedures.

An attorney for HECO and HELCO says the utility companies followed “all applicable rules and laws” and complaints against them “are based upon misinterpretation of the rules.”

In September, the Public Utilities Commission temporarily stopped the solar farm project while it reviews complaints from residents in the Ocean View area.
