The James Campbell Company has signed an agreement with Hoku Solar Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Hoku Scientific Inc., to plan the Kapolei Sustainable Energy Park – the largest photovoltaic facility on Oahu, Hawaii.
The Kapolei Sustainable Energy Park would be capable of generating approximately 1.5 MW of photovoltaic power. The facility will be located in the planned Kapolei Harborside industrial project on a 12-acre parcel owned by the Campbell Company next to the James Campbell Industrial Park.
As the project developer and owner, Hoku Solar would be responsible for designing, engineering, financing, procuring, installing and operating the solar facility.
Hoku Solar also notes that Hawaiian Electric Company has filed an application with the Hawaii Public Utilities Commission (PUC) to purchase electricity generated by a PV power system that Hoku Solar would install.
If approved by the PUC, the system will be installed on the roof of Archer Substation at Hawaiian Electric's Ward Avenue facility and will be rated at a minimum 167 kW.
