HECO and the Army break ground on $167-million Hawaiian biofuel-powered plant

August 22, 2016 |

In Hawaii, the state’s electric company HECO and the Army held a groundbreaking ceremony Monday for a $167 million biofuel-powered plant at the Army’s Schofield Barracks on Oahu. The facility is being sited in an area that is the safest on the island away from potential tsunami threats and storm surges. It will be supplied by a Finnish company and is expected to be online in 2018. Additional solar power capacity will also be integrated into the 50MW project that is expected to add $1.95 to $2.44 per month to HECO consumers’ power bills during the first few years of the project, decreasing over time.
