HECO Request for Proposals (RFP) for at least 200MW of Renewable Energy for Oahu
The Hawaiian Electric companies are actively pursuing substantially increased amounts of renewable generation for our island grids. As one means to obtain more renewable energy, Hawaiian Electric will be soliciting proposals for a minimum of 200 megawatts (MW) of renewable energy delivered to or generated on the island of Oahu. Proposals for off-Oahu renewable generation projects must include or be partnered with a proposal for an undersea cable system. Since different renewable technologies have varying capacity (i.e., availability) factors, Hawaiian Electric is seeking a total of 600 to 800 gigawatt-hours. This equals 8% to 11% of the total annual electricity currently used on Oahu.
