The Save Ewa Field position supports preservation of the 1941 Battlefield and making it into an Ewa Field Historic Memorial Park for the Ewa-West Oahu Community, while locating the Hunt Corp. solar PV panels on 20 acres outside of the historic 1941 Battlefield area. This would allow for both public park use and generation of solar PV energy.
