Alexander & Baldwin Inc. (A&B) and Kaua'i Island Utility Cooperative (KIUC) have completed A&B's 6 MW solar park at Port Allen, Kaua'i, Hawaii. The facility is located on a 20-acre parcel of land owned by A&B adjacent to KIUC's Port Allen Station power plant.

The facility, which commenced delivering power to KIUC on Dec. 7, is currently the largest solar generation facility in Hawaii, according to the companies. It is expected to generate approximately 10,200 megawatt hours of electricity annually, on average.

The project was developed by A&B's subsidiary, McBryde Sugar Company LLC. Originally announced in July 2011, the project was constructed in less than nine months from receipt of power purchase agreement approval. It is integrated with a 3 MW energy storage system at the point of interconnection.
