Hawaiian Electric with Navy to build a 20MW solar facility at the Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam

Hawaiian Electric Company with Department of the Navy announced plans to build a 20 megawatt (28 megawatts DC) solar facility at the Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, West Loch Annex.

Hawaiian Electric will build, own and operate the solar facility at the joint base. In exchange for the land needed for the project, the base will receive in-kind consideration in the form of electrical infrastructure upgrades to Navy-owned facilities.

The solar power generated by the facility will feed into the island’s electric grid and serve all customers on Oahu, including those on the base.

We are building momentum on our journey toward 100 percent renewable energy. We’ll get there by working closely with the Navy and our other partners in the community to develop smart, sustainable projects that can help stabilize electric rates for decades to come,” said Alan Oshima, Hawaiian Electric president and CEO.
