Microinverter provider Enphase entered an agreement with Swell Energy to participate in distributed virtual power plants in California, New York, and Hawaii.
The University of Hawaii at Manoa’s Dr. Matthias Fripp has released a white paper outlining what different land use scenarios would mean for the island in terms of land availability, total electric generation costs, and the overall design of the electric system on Oahu.
The solar power facility signed a 25-year fixed price agreement to sell its electricity at roughly 8.9¢/kWh.
The financing includes $188 million in non-recourse construction debt and $31 million in letters of credit.
The solar array will contribute up to 35 MW to the grid and store up to 240 MWh for dispatch during evening peak demand.
The company blamed interconnection costs along with global supply chain and production issues, and tariff and trade disputes.
States don’t need to reinvent the wheel when evaluating smart inverter requirements, said a Sunrun policy director, noting that delays in setting requirements could lead to “wasted infrastructure.”
Storage paired with solar must support the net nameplate capacity for at least four hours and support 365 full charge/discharge cycles each year.
Maui’s electric power grid is expected to operate with 100% solar and wind on an instantaneous basis as early as 2024, and NREL is helping the island plan to reliably supply electricity.
An upfront cash payment is available for residential and commercial customers on Oahu who attach a battery to their home and either use or discharge power during peak hours.
