windpower hawaii: on community owned lands
UPC Wind, a Massachusetts-based wind power company, has pledged $50 million to a campaign attempting to buy back land on the Hawaiian island of Moloka'I (Moloka'i Ranch) from offshore owners. The company then plans to build a windfarm on the community-owned lands. This generous, socially responsible and ecological move is groundbreaking.
The campaign is called Ho'i I Ka Pono, more about Hawaii windpower here.
