Clearway Energy Group which has its headquarters in San Francisco has signed a power purchase agreement with utility Hawaiian Electric Company for solar projects of a combined 75 MW capacity.

The two projects comprise of solar-plus-storage and will be located in Oahu, Hawaii.

The first project which is sized at 39 MW, the Mililani I Solar project is located in the Mililani Agricultural Park. The second project of 36 MW capacity, Waiawa Solar Power project is located in the Waiawa region. Both the project are equipped with storage capabilities.

“We are proud of the work Clearway is doing with Hawaiian Electric and all of our partners in Hawaii to expand renewable energy in the state,” said Clearway Energy Group CEO Craig Cornelius. “Hawaii is already a leader nationally in renewable development.”

Apart from these two projects, Clearway Solar also has three other projects in development which will be completed in 2019. Collectively these five projects have a capacity of 185 MW, enough to power 62,000 homes.

Hawaii has been a prolific installer of both rooftop solar and latterly batteries for energy storage and one of the US state’s smaller islands last year was also set to get its first ever grid-scale solar-plus-storage system with a 22-year PPA at US$0.17/kWh.
