A developer needs a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity from the [[Hawaii Public Utilities Commission]] under [[H.R.S. 269-7.5 - Certificates of Public Convenience and Necessity | H.R.S. 269-7.5]] to provide, sell, or transmit power directly to the public as a public utility. Hawaii defines "public utility" in [[Hawaii HRS 269 Public Utilities Commission|Hawaii Revised Statues 269-1]] to include every person who may own, control, operate, or manage…any plant or equipment, or any part thereof, directly or indirectly for public use…for production, conveyance, transmission, delivery, or furnishing of light, power, heat, cold, water, gar, or oil. However, the definition of public utility does not include any user, owner, or operator of the Hawaii Electric System.

:(1) Owns, controls, operates, or manages plants or facilities for the generation, transmission, or furnishing of electricity; and
:(2) Provides, sells, or transmits all of that electricity, except such electricity as is used in its own internal operations or is used for its own consumption, directly to a public utility for either transmission or distribution to the public.
