Richard Ha

Farmer on the Big Island's Hamakua Coast

Richard Ha recently built a hydroelectric plant at his 600-acre farm in Pepe‘ekeo on the Big Island in order to decrease his reliance on oil-based power. His focus is on helping the Big Island choose smart alternatives now that will reduce its dependence of foreign oil and allow the Island’s keiki and future generations to live a more sustainable lifestyle, in Hawai‘i, post-Peak Oil.
