The electro-chemical battery energy storage project uses lithium-ion as its storage technology. The project was announced in 2020 and will be commissioned in 2022.

Description

The Kahe Battery Energy Storage System is owned by Hawaiian Electric (100%), a subsidiary of Hawaiian Electric Industries.

The key applications of the project are load-shifting services and grid backup power services.

Contractors involved

Hawaiian Electric is the owner. Tesla is the technology provider for the project.

Additional information

Hawaiian Electric is proposing to build a 135-megawatt (MW) / 810 megawatt-hour (MWh) BESS at Kahe Power Plant. Tesla is working on a bid to deploy one of the biggest battery systems in the world with 244 Megapacks, Tesla’s latest giant battery system, on a Hawaiian island. The proposed project consists of a grid-tied BESS capable of storing 810 MWh of energy and discharging it at a rate of 135 MW. Hawaiian Electric, which is funding the project, anticipates that the total value of the project will be between $200 and $300 million.
