NELHA’s best selling products, from fossil fuel

MSNBC has an article about NELHA [cached], Hawaii, and the problems NELHA tenants face with increasing energy prices and lower subsidies for the science and technolgy park. It is deeply ironic that one of the main issues is rising energy costs, as NELHA previously hosted the worlds longest running OTEC plants. Even more ironic is that the biggest selling product from NELHA’s industrial resident, Deep SeaWater International is desalinated deep-seawater, sold as bottled water, which uses a reverse osmosis system [cached] most likely running on fossil fuel… If there were OTEC plants operating at NELHA today both energy and distilled seawater would be available without the use of fossil fuel.
