Hawaiian Electric Company (HECO), long concerned about power transmission reliability on the island of Oahu, proposed the siting of towers supporting 128 kV power lines along Waahila Ridge, which cradles the eastern side of Manoa Valley. This was a very controversial project, both because of its location in Manoa and the opposition of Manoa residents, and because of individuals and groups whose opposition to Hawaiian Electric’s activities is virtually automatic. Well-organized and vocal community opposition to this project mobilized in ways that garnered a great deal of media coverage and elevated the public profile of the effort. Hawaiian Electric is also firmly committed to taking affirmative action to employ qualified individuals with disabilities, veterans with disabilities, veterans, minorities, and women and to advance them in employment. We partner with a number of organizations to maintain a pool of diverse, qualified candidates.
