Correction: A former version of this article stated that Hawaii County Department of Water Supply was paying HELCO a current rate of 41 cents per kilowatt hour for energy at the Lalamilo-Parker Well Sites. According to a rate chart DWS supplied West Hawaii Today after this article was published, the department is paying a rate of 27.8 cents per kilowatt hour. HELCO does not confirm rates as they are considered confidential customer information. It is the policy of West Hawaii Today to correct any incorrect or misleading information as soon as it is brought to the attention of the paper.
