In this episode, we visit Poi By the Pound to try some local Hawaiian favorites. The owners CJ and Rochelle originally started in their garage, making poi and selling them by the bag from house to house. Now, they have a fully-equipped dine-in restaurant located in Kahului with a wide selection of dishes to choose from. Join David as he tries one of their most popular dishes, the Shoyu Poke Salad.

This year’s Hawaiian Electric Aloha United Way Golf Tournament raised about $90,000. With more than 200 contributors including 181 players, 34 volunteers, and 48 sponsors, it was a fun-filled day of golf at the Hawaii Prince Golf Club. Mahalo to everyone who made this event a success!

As our crews are preparing for the work ahead, Hawaiian Electric reminds Pacific Palisades customers to prepare for an extended outage today, June 20, while crews install new distribution equipment. The work is scheduled from 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., and the outage will affect about 2,000 customers from 8:30 a.m. to at least 4:30 p.m. Letters were sent to affected customers.

Crews will replace a riser utility pole that supports the circuit feeding the Palisades neighborhood, as well as five other poles. Five of the six poles date to 1962 when the neighborhood was first developed. Replacing the riser pole requires a crane and both overhead and underground work. A helicopter will also be used for pole replacements. The equipment upgrades will improve grid resilience and service reliability for the Palisades area.

Go for the Gold! This past weekend at the @Big Brothers Big Sisters of Maui’s 31st Annual Bowl for Kids’ Sake, our volunteers helped created a fun-filled day of bowling, entertainment, and friendly competition to raise funds for Maui’s at-risk children. All proceeds from this event benefit mentoring programs for children’s’ academic, behavioral, and emotional improvement.

With recent Kilauea eruptions, Hawaii Island may not be on the top of the bucket list for visitors but the island is ranked #10 on TripAdvisor. We need to remember that Hawaii Island is also known as the Big Island for its size. Even with the lava flow affecting a portion of the island, there are still places to visit throughout in Waimea, Hilo, and Kona.

The Big Island offers a goldmine of possibilities for travelers whether they are adventurers looking to explore or vacationers trying to relax. Some of the most beautiful beaches and hikes are located on the island, and visitors will find that there is something new to uncover every day. As long as visitors stay away from the area affected by the lava flow, you can still explore the natural beauty of the island. For example, Rainbow Falls (as pictured) has a beautiful waterfall at the end of an easily accessible hike. The waterfall often creates a rainbow effect during the day, which is how the trail got its name. Visit Hawaii Island and explore!

Yesterday morning on June 14, 2018, Hawaii Electric Light employees fast-tracked the connection of power to a new transitional housing community. Through Hope Services, a village of small shelters was constructed at Sacred Hearts Catholic Church in Pahoa.

In less than a month, micro-units for those displaced by the Kilauea eruption were built with the help of 150 to 180 volunteers and assistance from County of Hawaii and other organizations such as Pacific Rim Construction and Big Island Electrical Service and TNT Electric.

The 120-square-foot shelters were based on a shed design provided by HPM Building Supply, and was modified to include two windows, a security door, outlets, lights and insulation.

Hawaii takes one step further toward the goal of being carbon neutral by 2045 by having four counties formally join @Drive Electric Hawaii (DEH). DEH seeks to promote the use of electric vehicles, reduce fossil-fuel-powered transportation, and enable more renewable energy through collaboration on education, promotion, advocacy, and infrastructure to make electric mobility easier for all.

"We welcome the counties, their mayors, and sustainability coordinators, to Drive Electric Hawaii," said Brennon Morioka, Hawaiian Electric general manager for electrification of transportation.

By signing DEH's memorandum of understanding, county leaders agreed to collaborate on electrification of ground transportation in Hawaii as an essential part of achieving the state's clean energy goals. Read more about DEH’s mission and the four counties’ involvement here:

Starting Saturday, July 16, 2018, Hawaiian Electric will be conducting urgent underground upgrade work in the Iwilei, Kakaako and Ala Moana areas (in that order). Customers in those areas will experience power outages overnight from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. on Mondays through Thursdays. A schedule of the outages will be provided in advance. This upgrade is necessary as problems with splice components have been discovered and if left alone, they present a safety risk to our crews that work in manholes. Additionally, there are reliability risks for our customers whose homes and businesses are fed by these circuits.

We hope that advance notice will help you minimize any inconvenience. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to maintain a safe, reliable and resilient electric system. If you have questions regarding this work, please visit http://hwnelec.co/Mwhq30kudx6.
