Three new projects have brought over 110 MW of solar power to the island of Oahu, representing the largest block of utility-scale solar to come online at one time in a state known for its solar prowess.
Sunrun’s solar+storage Brightbox systems – 1,000 of them totalling 4.3 MW of capacity – are included in a contract for grid services submitted to Hawaii regulators.
Marginally higher solar output and lower electricity use allowed the share of solar in the overall mix to rise. California met more than 17% of its demand with solar during the six-month period, and solar + wind met 10.4% of the nation’s demand.
In an effort to replace two aging power plants, Hawaiian Electric Industries has launched a roughly 900 MW procurement, the largest in the utility’s history, across the islands of Oahu, Maui and Hawaii.
Hawaii and Massachusetts utilities represented six of the top 10 for per-customer watts of energy storage deployment, with Kaua’i knocking it out of the park.
Hawaiian Electric Companies has released its draft request for proposals to procure just over 2 terawatt-hours of renewable electricity, and just over 200 MW of capacity services, between the summer of 2022 and the end of 2025.
The plan calls for the deployment of nearly 260 MW of battery storage across the three islands of Oahu, Maui and Hawaii, in addition to renewable development. Could the fixation on storage within this proposal show the state’s determination for peak shifting?
Hello and, as with every other Wednesday, welcome to your Hump Day MB! Today we’ll be looking at Walmart and US Solar’s 36 project deal, POWERHOME solar expanding to Missouri, an Economy-wide analysis of decarbonization of the Pacific Northwest and much more. Let’s dive in!
The combination of solar plus storage is super-charging the deployment of batteries across the country, and IHS Markit says that the United States will become the largest market for grid-tied energy storage this year.
