Altus Power America, Inc. (Greenwich, Connecticut, U.S.) on March 30th, 2017 announced the completion of a 6.2 MW ground-mounted solar photovoltaic (PV) installation in Waiʻanae, Hawaii, on the west side of Oʻahu.

The PV plant, known as the Aloha Solar Project, will sell solar power energy to Hawaiian Electric Company for 20 years under the Tier 3 Feed-In Tariff (FIT) program.

The FIT program was designed to encourage the construction of renewable energy projects in Hawai'i by offering pre-established rates and standardized contract terms. More than 100 FIT projects totaling more than 24 MW are in service on Oʻahu.

The Aloha PV project is expected to generate more than 10 million kilowatt hours (kWh) of solar power annually.

"We are proud of our partnership with Hawaiian Electric and excited about bringing jobs to Hawaiʻi and helping the state achieve its goal of generating 100 percent of its electricity from renewable resources by 2045," said Tom Athan, president of Altus Power America.
