Planning Hawaii's Grid for Future Generations

IGP Planning Process

With a renewed focus on comprehensive energy planning, Hawaiian Electric proposed an Integrated Grid Planning ("IGP") process that we believe will benefit customers by identifying the best options to affordably move Hawaii toward a reliable, resilient clean energy future with minimal risk. In addition, we believe the State will benefit from expanded market opportunities for resource, grid services, and non-wires alternatives for transmission and distribution ("T&D"), which can foster innovative solutions for a new energy economy.

Hawaiian Electric believes the IGP process must be customer-centric and engage stakeholders to broadly represent the interests of Hawaii's various communities. This involves actively engaging customers and communities throughout this process to ensure balanced representation. Transparency and effective stakeholder engagement are key success factors for IGP.
