Solar exec provides insight on NextEra's purchase of Hawaiian Electric

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Local solar power executives are closely watching the effort to obtain regulatory approval to sell Hawaiian Electric to a mainland company, NextEra, which describes itself as a solar and wind power advocated but also owns Florida Power & Light. 

Colin Yost, chief operating officer of RevoluSun, told Howard Dicus on “Sunrise” this morning that solar power penetration in Florida is actually a fraction of what it is in Hawaii, and Nextera lobbied for an end to solar panel tax credits.
