Selling Power to the Utility

Oahu Non-Wires Alternative EOI

February 28, 2023

Through the NWA EOI, Hawaiian Electric is seeking information to determine whether there are cost competitive NWAs to the traditional wires solution on the island of Oahu, that will provide sufficient load reduction beginning in 2026 to address overloads of existing infrastructure due to the significant load growth in the Kakaako and Kewalo area in the coming years. Developers or aggregators who are capable of developing utility-scale renewable projects or aggregating DER/EE in the Kakaako and Kewalo area of Oahu are encouraged to submit comprehensive responses to this request. General performance requirements are provided in the EOI.
