Here is a rather telling view of how Hawaii PUC sees the influence of TPO forces in the Hawaii market.
Here is the conclusion:
"So now it's time to move on to Phase 2 of the DER investigation. Message to Bryan Miller and TASC: you all obviously need an attitude adjustment and understand that this investigation is about how to evolve and integrate Hawaii's electric system with new services and products to serve all of Hawaii affordably and reliably with the most cost-effective and cleanest resources to be a model for the rest of the nation. This DER investigation is not about a self-preservation initiative to be baited with negative campaigning tactics to influence a "political" decision. The privilege to participate in the DER investigation means serving a public-interest mandate.
Last words, your tactics are not grounded in value of Aloha - which embraces cooperation, compassion and caring, so really, you guys need an attitude adjustment."
It is sad a commentary on the purveyors of the TPO model.
Now, it will be intersting to see if California PUC falls for the "green" tactics of the TPO industry.
