Puna Geothermal to host community meeting

Puna Geothermal Venture will host a community meeting Friday to address status of restarting the power plant and access through its “pioneer road.”

The meeting is slated for 4-6 p.m. in the Pahoa High and Intermediate School cafeteria.

PGV built the road over the lava channel from last year’s Kilauea eruption to restore access to its site. During the Friday meeting, officials will discuss the ability of residents to use the road to access lava-locked properties.

Representatives from Hawaii Electric Light Co. and Hawaii County also will provide updates.
