November 2: Kalaeloa Partners LP Virtual Community MeetingPosted on Oct 14, 2022 in Important Events
The meeting will inform members of the public, surrounding communities, and stakeholders about KPLP’s power generation facility in the Campbell Industrial Park. KPLP will discuss plant operations, the benefits it provides in delivering electricity to Oahu’s consumers, its social responsibility activities, and 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 to the Public Utilities Commission for approval on November 24, 2021.
KPLP currently provides electricity to meet about 20% of Oahu’s needs and has been in operation since 1991. It is one of the early members of the 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 public about KPLP, and provides an opportunity for questions and input to be heard.
Details of the public meeting are as follows:
WHEN: Wednesday, November 2, 2022
