Event Details

Location: Honolulu, HI


Join us on Tuesday, Feb. 13 for an instructive and inspiring talk by David Bissell, President & CEO of KIUC — the Kauaʼi Island Utility Cooperative that bought the utility from the Kaua’i Electric Company in 2002 and converted it to a cooperative.

Under David’s leadership, KIUC has been consistently ranked as one of the top utilities for solar integration in the country and has increased its renewable energy sourced generation from 8% to almost 50%. In March of 2017, KIUC drew international attention when the world’s largest utility-scale solar-plus-battery facility, developed by Tesla, was unveiled.  The Tesla solar field stores energy during the day and releases it during peak evening hours.  
In early 2018, construction will begin on KIUC’s second dispatchable solar project.  In combination with the Tesla system, half of Kauai’s evening peak energy needs will be supplied by energy generated from the sun.

David earned his bachelor’s degree in accounting and finance from the state University of New York at Brockport, and his M.B.A. from the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University.
