LAWMAKERS SCHEDULE BRIEFING TO HEAR FROM HECO ON PLANS FOR DISTRIBUTED GENERATION AND IMPACTS OF ITS 2013 SOLAR INTERCONNECTION POLICY CHANGES

HONOLULU (September 10, 2014) – Senate and House lawmakers have scheduled a hearing to get an update from the Hawaiian Electric Company (HECO) and various solar organizations on the current status of solar interconnection and future plans for distributed generation.

Last September, HECO notified its customers of a policy change that would require permission from the company to proceed with the installation of a PV system. Since the policy change, many solar customers have been facing delays in getting their PV systems connected to the grid.
