Save Pohoiki - Keep Puna Clean and Green

To be delivered to Jay Ignacio, President of HELCO

Petition Statement

We want Hawaii Electric Light Company (HELCO) to stop its contract for new geothermal development on the Island of Hawaii, because the contract was excluded from the utility company's recent public planning effort, and previous geothermal sites on this island have been notoriously unsafe, unclean, and poorly regulated.
There are currently 1,805 signatures. NEW goal - We need 2,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Prior geothermal activity in the Pohoiki area of the Island of Hawai`i has caused serious community harm, resulting in successful lawsuits by more than 100 residents. Hawaii Electric Light Company's present effort to contract for new geothermal development without considering the community's concerns is unreasonable and should be stopped.
