MPowerMaui Report on the Responses of Participants

Determined to include the Maui community’s voice in future energy conversations, the Maui Economic Development Board (MEDB) engaged with county residents to develop a more expansive and nuanced understanding of their energy views and knowledge. The resulting MPowerMaui project sought to develop a process that would educate, engage, and empower residents to discuss their perspectives on Maui’s energy future.
