Abstract: "This report covers the period July I, 1993 - June 30, 1994.
Pursuant to Chapter 1960, Hawaii Revised Statutes (HRS), the Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) established a consolidated permit application and review process.
Recognizing that there has been no application for any large-scale geothermal project for the State of Hawaii, Governor John Waihee on December 8, 1992 issued a policy statement stating that there is no such project under consideration by the State. DLNR staff and resources efforts have been appropriately utilized and actively involved in the monitoring and regulation of existing projects currently permitted to explore, develop and generate geothermal electricity exclusively for the Island of Hawaii.
Although these efforts relative to geothermal development activities on the Big Island of Hawaii did not involve any aspect of large scale development of geothermal power, the DLNR's activities have been consistent with the objectives and purpose of Chapter 1960, HRS as amended. The allocation of program resources and duties performed by staff have been fully utilized in the DLNR's geothermal resource management responsibilities."
