August 31 – Virtual Community Meeting on KPLP’s power generation facility in the Campbell Industrial ParkPosted on Aug 17, 2022 in Important Events, Public Meeting
Kalaeloa Partners LP (KPLP) would like to invite you to a virtual community meeting (webinar format) to be held on Wednesday, August 31, 2022.
The meeting will inform members of surrounding communities, the public, and stakeholders about KPLP’s power generation facility in the Campbell Industrial Park. KPLP will discuss plant operations and efficiency, the benefits it provides in delivering electricity to Oahu’s consumers, as well as updates on the proposed renewal of its amended and restated power purchase agreement (ARPPA) with Hawaiian Electric Company (HECO).
The ARPPA would extend this agreement for another 10 years, reduce the price of energy and firm capacity provided to HECO, upgrade the power plant to enhance its efficiency and lower operational costs, and include an option for switching to biofuels. The ARPPA was submitted on November 24, 2021, to the Public Utilities Commission for approval.
KPLP currently provides electricity to meet about 20% of Oahu’s electricity needs and has been in operation since 1991. It is one of the early members of Campbell Industrial Park and has been a long-term supporter of community, educational, health, civic, and neighborhood organizations in the West Oahu area.
This meeting is a continuing series of community briefings to inform the surrounding communities and the public and provide an opportunity for questions and input from the community, including neighboring businesses.
Details of the public meeting are as follows:
WHEN: Wednesday, August 31, 2022
WHERE: Zoom (webinar format)
TIME: 6:00 p.m.
