Non-Wires Alternative Expression of Interest - Waikoloa

April 5, 2024

Through the Non-Wires Alternative (“NWA”) Expression of Interest ("EOI"), Hawaiian Electric is seeking information to determine whether there are cost competitive NWAs to the traditional wires solution on the island of Hawaii, that will provide sufficient load reduction beginning in 2029 to address overloads of existing infrastructure due to the significant load growth in the Waikoloa area on Hawai’i island in the coming years. Developers or aggregators who are capable of developing utility-scale renewable projects or aggregating DER/EE in the Waikoloa area of Hawai’i are encouraged to submit comprehensive responses to this request. General performance requirements are provided in the EOI.


Interested parties are requested to complete the Property Questionnaire (see Appendix A) and submit the information to Hawaiian Electric by May 10, 2024.
