Hawaii Energy Projects Directory

Click here to view the Directory

The Directory provides information on the notable energy projects throughout Hawaii in all stages of development and operation. It includes the renewable energy projects that will or could contribute to Hawaii’s mandate of 100% renewable energy by 2045 and the fossil fuel projects that currently provide critical electrical energy to the State.

The Directory identifies opportunities to learn about or provide input on these projects. Public comments on individual projects can be submitted any time to the Hawaii Public Utilities Commission (PUC) by entering the project Docket Number in the PUC’s Document Management System

About this Directory / Disclaimer

Projects listed in the Directory are based on public information only. Information on individual projects can be found in publicly available sources such as, but not limited to, regulatory agency filings and notices, meeting minutes, media publications, financial filings, landowner records, legislative materials, company communications, and other outlets. To the extent available, official sources of information are used to update the project information. Reasonable assumptions concerning a project’s status may be made based on the information available evidence demonstrating a project’s progress in key areas of development including site control, permitting, interconnection, power or fuel off-take, and construction. The Hawaii State Energy Office (HSEO) reserves the right to list projects on the Directory that warrant listing due to a projects’ innovation, uniqueness, and/or alignment with state priority initiatives. Projects may be removed from the Directory if no new information concerning project status is available after a reasonable duration.

The Directory is not a complete list of all proposed and existing renewable energy projects in Hawaii. It does not include smaller solar/photovoltaic installations under 500 kilowatts (kW), such as those under net-energy metering, self-supply, grid-supply, or feed-in tariff (FIT) interconnection programs, nor does it include any projects currently in the FIT queue. In addition, projects subject to an open or ongoing competitive solicitation may not be listed due to outstanding project uncertainty. Some projects may not be listed simply because little or no public information has been made available. Not all projects on the Directory will be developed and become operational for a variety of reasons. Some project announcements may be premature or unfounded, and many proposed projects are discontinued for a variety of reasons. As the Directory is based on publicly available information, HSEO cannot guarantee the accuracy or completeness of all information. In certain cases, attempts have been made by HSEO to verify information that has been publicly reported. Interested stakeholders are encouraged to contact individual project developers for the most accurate and current project information.

The Directory does not represent an endorsement of any specific project or company by HSEO or the State of Hawaii.

HSEO strives to provide the most accurate information on each project and encourages users to send project updates and/or corrections to [email protected].
