“We have crossed the 50-yard line and the terminal area is in sight,” said David Bissell, president and CEO of KIUC, at the unveiling ceremony of the power facility.
Under a 25-year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA), KIUC will purchase electricity from the facility at 11 cents per kWh. Bissell said: "Replacing fossil fuels with stable, low-cost renewable energy helps our partners maintain the lowest possible price."
He added that the facility will also avoid using 3.7 million gallons of diesel per year. Overall, KIUC's renewable energy portfolio has expanded from 8% in 2010 to more than 50% at the end of 2018, reducing the use of 15 million gallons of fossil fuel annually.
The fully integrated Lāwa project will support three key distribution scenarios – it allows solar power generator solar power to supply the grid while charging the system, and the electricity stored in the battery system is input to the grid during peak hours, allowing both solar and battery to be dispatched simultaneously Respond to the surge in demand for the grid.
“Kaua has adopted an ambitious renewable energy mandate, and the Lāwa project will help reduce dependence on fossil fuels to produce clean, reliable and affordable energy,” said AES President and CEO Andrés Gluski.
AES is currently building a 19.3 MW solar + 70 MWh battery energy storage facility on the land leased by the US Department of Defense for the KIUC naval base at the Baking Sands (PMRF) Naval Base.
