Hawaii Electric Light Company has moved its customer information center to the Leilani Estates Community Center at 13-3441 Moku St. in lower Puna. The center at Hawaiian Shores Community Center in Hawaiian Beaches has been closed.
“As we continue to restore electric service in upper Puna, we also want to reach out to customers in other areas still without power,” said HELCO spokeswoman Rhea Lee in a written statement. “We know our customers want to know more about the work that’s being done to recover from this devastating storm. We appreciate their patience and want to assure them we’re working safely and as quickly as possible to restore power.”
The center will be open from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Company representatives will be on hand to answer questions from the public and provide the status of repairing the damage caused by Tropical Storm Iselle. Customers may bring their electronic devices and get them charged. The center will remain open daily as the restoration process continues.
