June 8 – Kalaeloa Partners LP Virtual Community MeetingPosted on May 20, 2022 in Important Events, Public Meeting
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 also discuss plant efficiency, its operations and benefits from providing electricity to Oahu’s consumers, as well as 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 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 the 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:
