Hawaiian Electric Cos.(HECO), including subsidiary Maui Electric Co., have submitted plans for a $340 million smart grid technology project.

The project will enhance the existing grid and allow customers to monitor electricity use with computers and mobile devices.

This smart grid project is in line with the state’s plans of meeting the 100 percent Renewables Mandate by 2045.

“Our plans show that a 100 percent renewable energy future can be achieved,” said Alan Oshima, president and CEO of HECO. “We want to work with parties from all segments of our community – government, business, community, and environmental groups – to refine the plans for Hawaii’s energy future."
