Project Overview

Piʻiholo Road Solar, developed by Nexamp Solar, LLC, proposes to finance, construct, own, and operate the facility under a 20-year Power Purchase Agreement with Hawaiian Electric. The energy system will consist of 3.5 megawatts (MW) DC of solar photovoltaic (PV) generation capacity using FTC Voyager single-axis tracker racking and will be connected to a 2.7 MW / 10.9 -megawatt-hour (MWh) Tesla Megapack 2XL Lithium-Ion Battery Energy Storage System (“BESS”).

The Piʻiholo Road Solar Project will also be a part of the Community Based Renewable Energy (“CBRE”), Low to Moderate Income (“LMI”) “Shared Solar”, meaning that community members who meet certain LMI income requirements will have the opportunity to enroll in a share of the project and receive a discount on their utility bills.

The Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) is also capable of Black Start (delivering energy to the grid in the event of a system-wide blackout or other disruption.)
