On April 9, 2017, Hawaiian Electric announced that 10MW of space has been cleared for new solar energy projects on Oahu under the Customer Grid Supply program (CGS). This space will likely be swallowed up within a few weeks according to industry experts.
Additional capacity was freed up as customers who filed for solar under Net Energy Metering (NEM) agreements but never built their system were purged from the waiting list.
The original CGS program, launched in October 2015, allowed 25 MW of grid space on Oahu. The arrangement allows customers to sell electricity back to HECO and achieve significant savings. That first 25 MW lasted approximately nine months.
Like previous programs for solar, HECO takes applications on a first-come-first-served basis, so if you’re considering solar, or know someone who is, it is imperative that you apply immediately!
