New Solar Farm In Waikoloa, Hawaii Island

Have you driven through Waikoloa Village lately and seen that huge solar array? Here’s the scoop as reported by Civil Beat in May.
AES Corp.’s Waikoloa Solar + Storage project started feeding power into the island’s grid in May. AES has a 25-year power purchase agreement that allows it to sell energy to Hawaiian Electric at 9 cents per kilowatt-hour. That’s one of the lowest rates for energy in Hawaii and is expected to reduce customers’ monthly bills by about $5.
The solar farm is the Big Island’s first and largest solar plus storage project. It’s located on 300 acres on Waikoloa Road, 7.5 miles from Queen Ka’ahumanu Highway. Construction began in November 2021.
With the Waikoloa project online, Hawaii is now producing 54% of its energy from renewable sources, according to the utility.
