Hawai'i’s 100% clean energy future – locally produced renewable energy
AES Clean Energy (AES)* is proposing a 19.5MW dc / 7 MW ac solar photovoltaic array + 35 MWh of containerized lithium-ion battery energy storage system (BESS) on approximately 100 acres of land in west O‘ahu - near Wai‘anae Valley Road.
The Project will provide a clean, reliable source of power for approximately 5,000 O‘ahu homes and delivers power to Hawaiian Electric Company (HECO) at the lowest possible cost at a fixed-price over 25-years. The Project will enable HECO to burn less fossil fuel and is expected to contribute to the shutting down of existing fossil fuel plants.
The Project is anticipated to create approximately 200 local jobs during Project development and construction and generate economic output of approximately $45 Million. Lease rent from the Project will provide additional income for the landowner to support his ongoing agricultural operations.
