HONOLULU (AP) - NextEra Energy and Hawaiian Electric will be hosting 13 community meetings across Hawaii to discuss the companies’ pending merger.

The two companies announced in December that Florida-based NextEra plans to acquire Hawaiian Electric to expand clean energy in Hawaii.

NextEra is one of the country’s largest electrical utilities and owns a major wind and solar energy company. Hawaiian Electric supplies power to 95 percent of Hawaii’s population through its electric utilities.

The companies said Monday the informational meetings will take place on Oahu, Maui, Molokai, Lanai and the Big Island from April 7 to April 16. Senior leaders and other employees from both companies are extended to attend the meetings.
