“This is what we call a deep dive,” says Civil Beat’s Eric Pape of his ongoing series, Electric Dreams.

The point of the project detailing the 125-year history of the power company, Pape tells Pod Squad host Chad Blair, is “not just have it be a sort of encyclopedic chronology. We wanted to be dynamic, to pull at the threads that are really relevant right now given the many challenges and questions in the air around electricity in Hawaii.”
