Oracle boss plans 'green' isle in Hawaii

LARRY Ellison, America's third richest man, has revealed plans for an ambitious green experiment on a 141-square-mile island in the Pacific, which he bought this summer for $500m (€387m).

The Oracle CEO said he would turn Lanai, the sixth largest island in Hawaii, into an environmental "laboratory" featuring solar power, electric cars and plans to convert sea water to fresh water.

There had been rumours he intended to turn the island into an exclusive holiday hideaway for the world's richest people. (© Daily Telegraph, London)
