Fuel from sugarcane in Hawaii?

Ethanol from corn is basically a bad idea. It takes as much energy to make the ethanol as the ethanol generates. Sugarcane, though, has more sugar and it's easier to extract. Which is why Brazil has been successful with ethanol.

Hawaii has a lot of sugarcane, too. And they're in desperate need of energy independence. This could be part of the solution.
