Longroad Power has actually been picked by the Hawaiian Electric Company (HECO) to start developing 2 utility-scale solar and battery storage projects for conclusion in 2023 in the state of Hawaii. Both projects include work with the growth of solar jobs worth a mixed 160 MWac and Battery Power Storage Space Systems (BESS) worth 640 MWh.

The proposed tasks include the 120 MWac/480 MWh Mahi project in Kunia, O’ahu, which would certainly be the state’s largest solar task to date, as well as the 40 MWac/160 MWh Pulehu Solar in Pulehu, Maui.

” We have a performance history in Hawai’i of working with neighborhood homeowners to make good tasks that areas sustain,” said Paul Gaynor, CEO of Longroad Power. “We are grateful for the possibility to create these brand-new jobs that assist the state make strides towards its enthusiastic 100 percent renewable resource objective.”
