The Navy recently completed an environmental assessment for a joint effort between El Paso, Texas-based Hunt Cos. and Norway-based Scatec Solar to build a 5-megawatt solar array near the former Barbers Point Naval Air Station in West Oahu. The $30 million project, Kalaeloa Renewable Energy Park, will consist of 21,000 photovoltaic panels on 20 acres next to the Marine Corps’ former Ewa Field. Hunt affiliate Kalaeloa Ventures LLC will sell the energy to the Hawaiian Electric Co. through a 20-year power purchase agreement, reported Pacific Business News. The solar farm is one of many renewable projects the military is planning in Hawaii. The Marines, for example, hope to be off the grid by 2015 at Marine Corps Base Hawaii on the other side of the island from Kalaeloa, according to the story.
