Clean Energy Facts
In 2015, customers of Hawaiian Electric, Maui Electric and Hawaii Electric Light Company were served by almost 935 megawatts of renewable energy resource capacity (including 487 megawatts of customer-sited rooftop solar). Total generation capacity to meet our customers' electricity needs is approximately 3,031 megawatts.
These renewable energy sources resulted in 2,081 gigawatts hours or 23.2 percent of electric sales in 2015, as reported in our Renewable Energy Portfolio Status Report to the Public Utilities Commission. This does not include energy savings from solar water heating or quantifiable energy efficiency. The 2015 total is an increase from 1,914 gigawatt hours or 21.3 percent of sales in 2014.
Tri-company electricity sales in 2015 totaled 8,956 gigawatt hours. (A gigawatt hour equals one billion watt- hours or one million kilowatt-hours or one thousand megawatt-hours.)
Where is this renewable energy coming from?
