Nexamp to create 7 community solar projects in Hawaii for LMI residents
Hawaiian Electric conducted a competitive bidding procedure and evaluated propositions from a variety of solar and also storage programmers, picking Nexamp exclusively to build, possess and run the first round of projects. " Getting these projects authorized is a turning point that reflects the effort of our whole group to produce solutions that attend to the demands of the communities in which we operate," said Chris Clark, primary development officer at Nexamp. "Our commitment to accessibility shapes everything we do, from signing up subscribers to giving financial and employment possibility. Each of our thousands of successful projects around the nation represents a long-term commitment to the people and also businesses of the community." The 7 solar farms will be the initial of their kind under the CBRE program on each island as well as are anticipated to be operational by the end of 2025. Kalaoa Solar A, Hawaii Island, 4.3 MW DC (3 MW AC) solar + 13.7 Megawatt-hour storage Kalaoa Solar B, Hawaii Island, 4.3 MW DC (3 MW AC) solar + 13.7 Megawatt-hour storage Nā' ālehu Solar, Hawaii Island, 4.2 MW DC (3 MW AC) solar + 13.7 Megawatt-hour storage Līpoa Solar, Maui, 4.2 MW DC (3 MW AC) solar + 13.7 Megawatt-hour storage Makawao Solar, Maui, 3.5 MW DC (2.5 MW AC) solar + 10.9 Megawatt-hour storage Pi'iholo Road Solar, Maui, 3.5 MW DC (2.5 MW AC) solar + 10.9 Megawatt-hour storage Kaukonahua Solar, Oahu, 7.8 MW DC (6 MW AC) solar (co-developed with Melink Solar). Community solar, or shared solar, enables any resident to register for a solar farm as well as obtain credit scores on their regular monthly utility bill that help to lower their annual electrical expenses. These certain shared solar farms are booked solely for low- and moderate-income subscribers, making sure that those who qualify will take advantage of the cost savings of shared solar. Several are tenants or house dwellers and do not have access to privately possessed rooftop solar. " In addition to bringing savings to those who require them most, these projects will certainly transport new government funding to Hawaii provided by the just recently passed Rising cost of living Reduction Act and also help the state better its goal of reducing its dependancy on nonrenewable fuel sources," included Clark. "The unique ecological nature as well as island geography of Hawaii makes this job all the more vital as a step in ensuring a clean and lasting future for the future generation. We expect getting going.".

Hawaii launches mega 900MW renewables tender
Hawaiian Electric Co (HEC) has kickstarted a colossal clean energy tender, seeking providers of 900MW worth of renewables and energy storage projects. The tender launched on Monday is the largest renewables procurement ever issued in the state, with an estimated capacity of 2,000GWh annually. The investor-owned utility is soliciting 594MW worth of solar for O'ahu island – together with 135MW for Maui and up to 203MW for Hawai'i – from local and global developers. All renewables for Maui and Hawai'i must include energy storage, whereas on O'ahu, such partnerships remain optional. Hawaii has pledged to be powered entirely by renewables by 2045. O’ahu’s 180MW AES coal-fired power plant, which meets 16% of peak power demand on the island, is due to close by September 2022. On Maui, the 27.6MW Kuhului oil-fired plant will be decommissioned in 2024. Storage on O'ahu and Maui is also being sought to replace firm generating units, which can be provided by renewable generation paired with storage or standalone storage. Contingency storage is also being sought for O'ahu and Hawai'i islands. Clean energy moves later this year for smaller islands The winning projects are expected to be selected by May 2020 and come online between 2022 and 2025. A separate request for proposals for grid services from customer-sited distributed energy resources on O'ahu, Maui, and Hawaii was also launched. The winning projects, which can range from 4-119MW, are expected to be awarded in January 2022 and come online by 2022 at the latest. According to the HEC, Hawaii’s public utilities commission has engaged independent observers and technical advisers to ensure that all proposals are treated fairly and equitably “due to the complexity of projects sought.” Later this year, HEC will issue requests for proposals for renewables for two of Hawaii’s smaller islands, pending approval by the state's public utilities commission. It will seek the equivalent of 4MW of solar-plus-storage or 3.6MW of wind-plus-storage for Moloka’i. The equivalent of around 9.5MW of solar-plus-storage will be pursued on Lana’i. In the first phase of Hawaii’s renewables procurement in 2018, eight projects totalling 260MW/1GWh of solar-plus-storage were negotiated on O’ahu, Maui and Hawai’i. Prices arranged for those projects, which will come online by 2021, average 9.38 US dollar cents per KWh, lower than the current cost of fossil fuel generation, which is about 15 cents per KWh.
