REC Solar breaks ground on 12 MW solar array in Hawaii

Sponsored by

Commercial solar power system installer REC Solar commenced construction on a 12 MW AC (14.53 MW DC) solar array for Hawaiian utility Kaua‘i Island Utility Cooperative.

With 57,624 solar panels, the utility solar power project will be REC Solar’s largest project to date.

The 60-acre solar photovoltaic system will be located in Anahola on the northeast side of the island of Kaua‘i. Upon completion in 2015, it will generate five percent of Kaua‘i’s annual energy needs, or enough electricity to power 4,000 homes.

A six MW lithium-ion battery system will be installed alongside the array to store energy when the sun is shining and distribute it when clouds reduce the system’s output.

REC Solar has established itself as a solar company in Hawaii, with almost 20 MW of utility and commercial-scale projects complete or underway. The Anahola system is the second project that REC Solar has developed with KIUC, following a 1.2 MW array in Kapa‘a. Other commercial systems include wastewater treatment centers, schools and major retailers on the Hawaiian Islands.
