Community Benefits Program

The Campbell Industrial Park Generating Station is a 110-megawatt generator designed to be fueled exclusively with 100 percent, renewable biodiesel.  In approving Hawaiian Electric's application to build the plant, the Hawaii Public Utilities Commission also approved a Community Benefits Program for the people in the neighborhood of the plant located on Oahu's Leeward coast.  For more information about the Community Benefits Program, read the application for the program.

Air Quality Monitoring Program

As part of the Community Benefits Program, Hawaiian Electric installed three air quality monitoring stations at Waianae, Lualualei and Makakilo to measure the daily air quality index.  Learn more about our air quality monitoring program at www.westoahuair.com.

Fish Monitoring Program

Hawaiian Electric also reinstated a fish monitoring program along the Leeward Coast of Oahu to track changes in fish communities and populations.  See current and past results of the Reef Fish Monitoring Project and Summary of 2016 Fish Monitoring Results.
