Hawaiian Utility Proposes to Build State's Largest Solar Plant

Oct 29, 2013

Hawaiian Electric Co. is asking the state Public Utilities Commission to approve Hawaii’s largest photovoltaic energy project.

The utility has proposed the solar plant for 50 acres of undeveloped land next to its Kahe Generating Station, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported.

The 15-megawatt project would be the first photovoltaic facility owned and operated by the utility, which selected SolarCity Corp. to constructing the project. The commission must sign off on the choice.
