Jun. 2--AES Distributed Energy, a division of The AES Corp., was selected by Hawaiian Electric Cos. to develop and operate two new utility-scale solar-plus-storage facilities on Oahu. The two projects combined are expected to generate 137, 000 megawatt-hours of locally produced, reliable renewable energy, serving upward of 23, 000 homes.
One of AES' projects will be a 19.5-megawatt direct-current photovoltaic facility paired with a 35-megawatt-hour battery energy storage system, and the other will be a 60-megawatt direct-current PV facility paired with a 240-megawatt-hour battery energy storage system.
Construction of these projects is expected to begin in 2022, pending all applicable permitting and approvals, with completion scheduled for 2023.
