HECO gathers info on land available for renewable energy development

Hawaiian Electric companies are gathering information on land available for renewable energy development.

HECO, Maui Electric, and Hawaii Electric Light Company are issuing a Request for Information (RFI), which asks interested landowners to provide information about their properties on Oahu, Hawaii Island, Maui, Molokai and Lanai.

The utility wants to build large-scale projects, such as solar and wind farms, or grow biofuels feedstock, in order to reach its 100-percent renewable energy goals.

The utility says the state will need a broad mix of renewable energy resources. Continued growth of private rooftop solar energy systems and energy storage will offer customers more options. These resources will be complemented by additional large-scale projects, which will help ensure all customers receive the benefits renewable energy.

Interested parties should submit responses to the RFI by Jan. 27, 2017. For more information, go to www.hawaiianelectric.com/landRFI or email landrfi@hawaiianelectric.com.
