The vision of the Molokai New Energy Partners Project reflects the sentiments and values embraced and expressed by the residents for a healthy, sustainable, and energy-independent Molokai. The project has been developed to address Molokai’s needs.

 

The Molokai Island Energy project means: 

  • Generates power at a lower cost than current diesel production

  • At the time of PPA signing in February, 2018, a $60 per year saving per household was expected. Since then, oil prices have risen almost $30 per barrel, and initial savings may be more if oil prices remain at this level or rise further.

  • Time shifts power to the evening to avoid competing with demand with rooftop solar systems

  • Reduction the greenhouse gas emissions

  • Jobs for Molokai residents

  • Reduces volatility of prices due to oil price changes

 

THIS PROJECT IS AN SMART ECONOMIC STEP TOWARDS ENERGY INDEPENDANCE
