NextEra Energy to build solar power systems for U.S. Navy in Hawaii

9. Hawaii (106.9 MW)

NextEra Energy Resources, a unit of NextEra Energy plans to continue a project to build, own and operate about 17 MW of solar power facilities on three separate military installations on Oahu.

A unit of NextEra Energy Resources will build one ground-mounted fixed-tilt solar power system, three carport solar systems and 10 rooftop solar power systems. The systems will be comprised of about 71,000 Sharp solar modules.

Site preparation is underway, and system construction is expected to begin in February 2016 and be completed by year’s end. All of the power is being purchased by the U.S. Navy under a 25-year power purchase agreement.

In 2011, the Naval Facilities Engineering Command Pacific selected Pacific Energy Solutions an energy development company, as the developer to use specified sites on military installations in Hawaii to build solar power generating systems and directly sell power to the military.

In July 2014, after several years of project due diligence, NAVFAC and PES entered into a contract for about 17 MW of solar photovoltaic power.

In October 2015, a unit of NextEra Energy Resources purchased the membership interest in PES. The PES project was originally developed by TriLateral Energy and ECC Energy Solutions. ECC will continue with the project team and actively manage the project construction through completion and start-up.
