Energy Options Analysis Study

In May of 2015, the Mayor's Office of Economic Development issued an RFP for an options analysis of the alternate forms of ownership and the alternative utility business models for Maui County's electric utility company. After evaluations and screenings, C.H. Guernsey & Company was chosen to do a high-level, big-picture study for the County of Maui on what path we might pursue in this period of a changing electric utility environment. The contract to Guernsey was for $71,000. The final report can be viewed at the link below.
