Hawaiian Electric to deactivate Honolulu Power Plant

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow)- Hawaiian Electric Company will deactivate its Honolulu Power Plant on Jan. 31, 2014, as part of its strategy to increase the use of renewable energy and reduce Hawaii's dependency on imported fossil fuel.

"Thanks to the lower use of electricity and tremendous growth in renewable energy as a result of Hawaii's clean energy efforts, we're able to deactivate some older, less efficient oil-fired generating units on Oahu, Maui and Hawaii Island. This will help us use less oil and lower customers' electric bills," said Ron Cox, Hawaiian Electric vice president of power supply.

The Honolulu Power Plant went into service in 1954. In 1957, the power plant was officially named after Leslie A. Hicks, who was Hawaiian Electric's president at the time it was opened.
