Status of Permit Applications: Keep the North Shore Country is addressing the endangered bat aspects of the project in a contested case at the DLNR. The US Fish and Wildlife Service has not made a decision on the applicant’s request for an incidental take permit for the endangered bat. We hope the wind farm will be required to avoid any bat take they can not offset. The City and County of Honolulu has not issued a permit for wind turbine construction and we hope the State Health Department and EPA will step in to ensure the wind farm is required to move to a location where it will not have serious social and economic justice implications.
Please Help Prevent the Na Pua Makani Wind Farm: Kahuku Community Association, an anonymous Native Hawaiian benefactor, Mothers Against Wind Turbines, and Surfers4Solar (see surfers4solar.org for surfer concerns) are combining forces to support Keep the North Shore Country’s contested case. Please donate to Keep the North Shore Country (an anonymous Native Hawaiian benefactor is matching donations at this time).

* I am a developing this website and do some writing on weekends and evenings as a volunteer member of the community. I present information I believe to be true based on my personal research as a member of the public and information compiled by collaborators and the various non-profit entities engaged in addressing the Na Pua Makani Wind Farm.
