The proposed projects include a 15 MWAC solar and 60 MWh battery storage facility in the island of O'ahu and a 20 MWAC solar and 80 MWh battery storage facility in the island of Maui
Innergex Renewable Energy is pleased to announce it has successfully advanced to the Final Award Group in Hawaiian Electric Companies’ request for proposals for new renewable power generation. The proposed projects are a 15 MWAC solar and 60 MWh battery storage facility located on the island of O’ahu and a 20 MWAC solar and 80 MWh battery storage facility located on the island of Maui. The two projects have a proposed commercial operation date of 2023.
“Innergex already has two projects in development in Hawaii. Adding these two extra projects will enable Innergex to achieve its strategic priority of developing its expertise in battery storage and increasing its presence in the United States while supporting Hawaii in its journey to achieve 100% clean energy by 2045,” said Michel Letellier, President and Chief Executive Officer of Innergex. “We look forward to continuing to engage with the local communities where these future sites are proposed, introduce our team, and provide information about the projects.”
The projects are subject to reaching an acceptable, 25-year power purchase agreement with Hawaiian Electric Company, Inc., an important step that will need to be concluded before moving ahead with the permitting process, and to seek approval by the Public Utilities Commission.
