Community-Based Renewable Energy Phase 1
Hawaiian Electric opened the first phase of the Community-Based Renewable Energy in June 2018, accepting applications from interested companies, organizations, developers, or groups that wished to become a subscriber organization and propose a community solar project.
Only solar projects were eligible for the initial phase of 8 megawatts of capacity available statewide, equivalent to a small grid-scale array, as approved by the Commission. Some projects for Phase 1 are still in development under the original rules. Hawaiian Electric expects two Phase 1 CBRE projects to go online in 2020 Q4. The unallocated capacity from Phase 1 has been rolled over into Phase 2. No Phase 1 capacity is currently available.
