Eurus Energy America’s Waianae Solar Facility Achieves Commercial Operation

SAN DIEGO, CA; January 25, 2017:  EE Waianae Solar Project LLC, an affiliate of Eurus Energy America Corporation, has begun commercial operation of the largest solar photovoltaic (PV) generating facility in Hawaii, the 27.6-megawatt Waianae Solar Project on the island of Oahu. The facility was developed by Eurus Energy America and is owned jointly by affiliates of Eurus and Toyota Tsusho America Inc. Power from the facility will be sold to Hawaiian Electric Company under a 22-year power purchase agreement approved by the Hawaii Public Utilities Commission.

“Eurus is committed to bringing highly viable renewable energy projects on-line in a responsible and timely manner to help the State of Hawaii meet its ambitious renewable energy goals” said Satoshi Takahata, president and CEO of Eurus Energy America.

“Our ability to deploy capital and work alongside Hawaiian Electric to bring this renewable project to completion and supply the grid with clean power will help the state in its drive towards a clean energy based economy. The successful completion is due to the collective efforts of many, including our contractor REC Solar, the City & County of Honolulu and, of course, our long-term customer, Hawaiian Electric.”
