Sempra US Gas and Power plans expansion of Hawaii wind power project

Sempra U.S. Gas & Power is planning a major expansion of its 21 MW Auwahi Wind project in Hawaii, according to a report from Pacific Business News.

The expansion would increase the capacity of the project, which is located on the island of Maui, by 120 MW by adding 40 wind turbines. A spokesman for Sempra told Pacific Business news the expansion is a response to a request for proposals from the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands, which is looking to lease up to 1,400 acres of land on Maui to developers for renewable energy projects.

According to the report, the expansion would rely heavily on the plan for a multi-billion-dollar cable project that would run undersea from Maui to Oahu.
