Description:
The Kapolei Sustainable Energy Park consists of approximately 4,200 photovoltaic modules covering nearly 5 acres of land owned by the James Campbell Company adjacent to the Campbell Industrial Park in Kapolei, effectively revitalizing the remediated site. The 1 megawatt (MW) project was built by Forest City Sustainable Resources in partnership with Hoku Scientific and Hawaiian Electric Company (HECO). Over the life of the system, it is estimated to produce enough electricity to power approximately 6,700 homes per year, reduce greenhouse gas emissions by eliminating 38,161 tons of carbon dioxide, and save 120,000 barrels of oil over 25 years. The power purchase agreement for this project was approved by the Hawaii Public Utilities Commission in November 2011 and the solar farm was placed into service in December 2011. HECO will purchase power from this facility at $0.2360/kilowatt-hour through December 2031.
