Letting Puna be Puna

We need you now!               

HELCO is planning a new geothermal plant without community inputs. Now is the time to tell HELCO with rallies, parades, meetings, and other public events that the people of Puna want a voice before further geothermal development. 
Please volunteer for the Stop the RFP - Save Pohoiki, committee. Our best time to stop geothermal expansion IS NOW!
Would you step up to be on or run the committee that plans and executes these events?  We need to think big, in the thousands. And we need you to get involved now!

HELCO and the State are moving toward a time when legal proceedings may be necessary to ensure the community has a voice in the industrialization of Puna. Would you like to be on a volunteer on a committee that maintains a record of geothermal development in the past and future, a record that makes facts clearly available to those carrying the water to the State. Please volunteer for the Documentation Committee. Contact Barb by email to with 'PPA Helper' in the message line along with your name. Meetings start next Thursday at 4.30pm near Pohoiki. Please email and I'll send you details of where to meet.

We sometimes ask for people to come out and support us with testimony, especially when important legislation is being passed. This can be done in person or by email. If you have never given testimony but would like to, we can guide you in this process. It is an empowering thing to do and an action that is of immense value when it comes to passing legislation. When the people speak en masse, the politicians listen!

If you want to get involved, there are lots of ways to help. If you have a skill that would be useful, have questions, want information, can donate time or money or want to come to our weekly meetings, please contact
or call (808) 339-4344
