Hawaii Opens Renewable Energy Proposals

[RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Renewable Hawaii has issued a second round Renewable Energy Request for Project Proposals (RE RFPP) for the islands. The initiative is seeking opportunities for equity investment in projects to produce electricity for Hawaii from renewable resources, such as sun, wind, hydro, biomass, ocean or geothermal energy. Renewable Hawaii will team with developers and take a minority interest in the project to contribute to financing, and to help increase the overall number of renewable energy projects connected to the electrical grid. Projects supplying “firm” power, which is a power source that the utility can call upon on demand, on each island will generally receive higher priority than “as-available” energy sources. Projects should also confirm that the renewable technology is commercially viable and can be positively integrated into the islands’ electric systems. Projects must have a capacity of at least 1 MW, and begin commercial operation no later than December 31, 2010. Responses to the RFPP are due on or before June 30, 2005.
