Constructing the Largest Federal Solar Generation Facility in Hawaii

ECC was a founding member of the development team that was awarded the US Navy’s Hawaii Solar Power Generating Systems Multiple Award Contract. At closing, the financing entity took control of the project and retained ECC as the project construction management agent. ECC managed the installation of 68,000 photovoltaic (PV) modules at 10 sites on military installations on Oahu to include a utility-scale, 42-acre system on Waipio Peninsula, one of the largest solar generation facilities in Hawaii. The system is connected to the US Navy grid via the construction of a 2-mile underground electrical distribution system, which included a 2,200-foot drilled 30-inch bore beneath the Pearl Harbor Channel. The US Navy estimated these solar installations will offset 20,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions per year.
