Hawaiian Electric Co. said Monday it is looking for land to build more renewable-energy projects. The state’s largest electrical utility said its companies are issuing a Request for Information seeking responses from landowners in the utility’s service areas that have space available for utility-scale renewable-energy projects.
“Land is one of the most important resources to consider in the development of renewable energy projects,” said Shelee Kimura, vice president of strategic planning and business development at HECO, in a statement. “By proactively identifying potential sites, we are hoping to make the process of developing renewable energy projects faster and more efficient for both land owners and prospective developers.”
Landowners’ responses are due Jan. 27. Go to www.hawaiian electric.com/landRFI or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
