The Army is studying a potential biofuel-capable power plant at Schofield Barracks.

The public has an opportunity to provide input on alternatives, potential environmental impacts and other issues of concern that should be included in an environmental impact study. Public scoping meetings will be held Feb. 5 at Mililani Mauka Elementary School and Feb. 6 at Wahiawa District Park.

The Army says the proposed plant would be an inland source of renewable energy that benefits Oahu and communities surrounding Schofield.

The plant would provide backup power for Schofield Barracks, Wheeler Army Airfield and Field Station Kunia. Electricity produced from biofuels at the plant will help the Army achieve renewable energy goals.

Air quality, traffic and storm water are among the impacts that will be studied.
