US-based Clearway Energy Group has signed power purchase agreements (PPA) with Hawaiian Electric Company to build two solar projects in Hawaii.

The two solar and storage projects located in Oahu, Mililani I Solar and Waiawa Solar Power, will have a combined capacity of 75MW.

The PPAs have been submitted to the Hawaii Public Utilities Commission (PUC) for a review.

The Mililani I Solar is a 39MW project located in Mililani Agricultural Park, while the Waiawa Solar Power, located in the Waiawa region, is a 36MW capacity project. Both projects will have battery storage capability.

Clearway Energy Group CEO Craig Cornelius said: “We are proud of the work Clearway is doing with Hawaiian Electric and all of our partners in Hawaii to expand renewable energy in the state.

“We are proud of the work Clearway is doing with Hawaiian Electric and all of our partners in Hawaii to expand renewable energy in the state.”

“Hawaii is already a leader nationally in renewable development, and we’d like to thank Hawaiian Electric, Governor Ige, the Legislature, and the PUC for their leadership and vision in setting the state on a course to be 100% powered by renewables by 2045.”

The two solar projects in Hawaii are in addition to three Clearway solar projects, which are currently under construction and will be completed this year.

Upon completion, the five projects will have a combined capacity of 185MW of low-cost renewable energy, which is sufficient to power nearly 62,000 Oahu homes each year.

Clearway is one of the largest clean energy companies in the US with over 500 employees and renewable assets across 28 states.
