Hoku Solar Building 7 MW Solar Farm In Hawaii


Hoku Solar Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Hoku Corp., has signed an agreement with a subsidiary of Alexander & Baldwin Inc. (A&B) to design and build the 7.2 MW Port Allen Solar Farm for A&B on the island of Kaua'i, Hawaii.

Hoku Solar will partner with Helix Electric Inc. to construct the facility, which is expected to be placed in service in late 2012. A&B selected the Hoku-Helix project team via a competitive bid.

Power generated by the Port Allen Solar Farm will be sold by A&B to the island's electrical utility company, Kaua'i Island Utility Cooperative, under a 20-year agreement recently approved by the Hawaii Public Utilities Commission.
