Hawaii lawmakers will get update on solar connectivity

HONOLULU (AP) - Hawaii lawmakers will soon be getting an update about how utilities are dealing with solar connectivity issues.

The briefing will be held at the state Capitol on Tuesday.

Officials from Hawaiian Electric Company will give an update on changes they've made to address problems customers had connecting their solar panels to the grid.

The state Legislature last year passed a law that sought to modernize Hawaii's electrical system. That was after community members shared harrowing stories about investing money in solar panel systems that couldn't connect to the state's electrical system.
