Larry Ellison (owner of 95+% of Lanai) was interviewed on CNBC yesterday. Most of the conversation pertained to Oracle Corp., but if you scroll down about 75% of the linked page, you will find a brief (however, more info than I've been able to locate in recent months) outline of his plans for the Island: including total solar for electricity, electric cars,desalinization of much of the water supply, comprehensive organic farming featuring drip irrigation with a goal of exporting produce and support of residents desiring to start businesses.
There are numerous video clips of the interview; including this one that includes aerial shots of the Island, but it stops just short of including his comments on Lana'i...perhaps later today.
P.S. In searching for back-up to the preceeding links, I stumbled across this summary: http://www.cnbc.com/id/49265334Edited: 9:48 am, October 03, 2012
