Hawaiian Electric posts new renewable energy projects’ details

News Release from HECO

HONOLULU, June 2, 2020 – Hawaiian Electric has posted details of 16 solar-plus-storage or standalone-storage projects selected in the latest phase of the clean energy transition for Oahu, Maui and Hawaii Island.

(Really Obvious Question: How many of these 16 are represented by Caliboso?)

The name, location, developer, technology, size and estimated completion dates are listed on the Hawaiian Electric renewable project status board at www.hawaiianelectric.com/statusboard as well as links to each project’s individual website. Each developer is responsible for ongoing outreach to their prospective neighboring communities, alerting them to plans and responding to concerns.

If all projects are completed as planned, nearly seven points will be added to Hawaiian Electric’s renewable portfolio percentage by 2025. The company expects to reach the mandated 30 percent renewable energy goal by the end of this year with plans in place to exceed 40 percent by 2030, 70 percent by 2040 and 100 percent clean energy for electricity by 2045.

The 16 projects – including two to be built by Hawaiian Electric – were chosen through a competitive evaluation in the largest renewable energy procurement ever undertaken in Hawaii. Among the criteria for selection were price, location, technology and a plan for meaningful community engagement by the developer.

The results are eight solar-plus-storage projects and one standalone-storage project on Oahu, three solar-plus-storage projects and one standalone-storage project on Maui and two solar-plus-storage projects and one standalone-storage on Hawaii Island for a total of 460 megawatts of solar energy and nearly 3 gigawatt-hours of energy storage.

An announcement on project selection for Molokai is expected by the end of July. Hawaiian Electric is currently working on a request for proposals for Lanai to be issued later this year.
