Alexander & Baldwin Inc. (A&B) and Kaua'i Island Utility Cooperative (KIUC) have completed A&B's 6 MW solar park at Port Allen, Kaua'i, Hawaii. The facility is located on a 20-acre parcel of land owned by A&B adjacent to KIUC's Port Allen Station power plant.

The project, which commenced delivering power to KIUC on Dec. 7, is currently the largest solar generation facility in Hawaii, according to the companies. The project is expected to generate, on average, 10,200 MWh of electricity per year, and the facility is integrated with a 3 MWh battery energy storage system installed by KIUC at the point of interconnection.

The project was developed by A&B's subsidiary, McBryde Sugar Co. LLC. Originally announced in July 2011, the project was constructed less than nine months after the public utility commission approved a 20-year power purchase agreement between McBryde and KIUC.
