Utility company Hawaiian Electric is preparing to add 900MW of new renewable energy and storage on Oahu, Maui, and Hawaii Island with their largest ever competitive bidding process.

Hawaii is targetting 100% renewables by 2045 and these projects are expected to begin producing between 2022 and 2025. Hawaiian Electric is expecting their portfolio to be 30% renewables before 2020.

The projects will contribute to the energy mix as the 180 MW of coal-fired power (AES Hawaii – Hawaii’s largest) and 37.6 MW of oil-fired power (Kahului) are retired between 2020 and 2024.

Hawaiian Power’s first procurement round concluded in 2018 and 2 more are expected in 2019 for 4 MW of solar and 3.6 MW of wind on Molokai, and 9.5 MW or solar plus storage on Lanai.
