Project and community benefits

A project that will bring many benefits to the surrounding communities

Construction and operation phases will create benefits in terms of new employment opportunities, as well as the use of local resources. Preference would be given to retaining local persons, consultants, businesses and contractors throughout the development of the project.

Innergex is committed to applying its expertise, resources, and dedication to the good of the planet in actively addressing Maui’s unique challenges.

 

“Reducing greenhouse gas emissions and combating climate change is critical to our future. …we look forward to exploring opportunities to work with Innergex to preserve and protect the Pu‘u Kukui Watershed Preserve and the ahupua‘a…that surround the project site. The collaborative effort to ensure and provide renewable energy and water to the entire West Maui community and the greater community at large on Maui is exciting and vital.”
