Kama'ole
Solar Project

A solar project is being proposed for the island of Maui

Kamaole Solar LLC, a joint venture between Potentia Renewable Developments LLC and Peg Gen Holdings, LLC, is proposing to develop the Kama’ole Solar Project, a 40 MW solar photovoltaic energy project paired with a 160 MWh battery energy storage on Maui. The project was recently acquired by Potentia. 

We are pleased and excited about the opportunity to bring the project to fruition, and to contribute to the State’s overall goal of 100% renewable by 2045.

The proposed project will occupy approximately 320 acres of Haleakala Ranch land in the Kama’ole Ahupua’a of Maui. The Tax Map Key (TMK) for the project is (2)2-2-002:001 as well as a portion of TMK (2)2-2-002:050. The project will interconnect to the circuit associated with the Kealahou-Auwahi line.

On February 3, 2021, we hosted a virtual open house to provide more information on the project. A recording of this first virtual open house can be viewed here.

The latest virtual open house took place on July 13, 2021. A recording of this virtual open house and presentation slides will be made available soon.

Community Outreach

The Kama’ole Solar Project will proactively reach out to and engage the community to listen for concerns and opportunities for support. Frequent and meaningful communication will be critical for minimizing impacts and maximizing the benefits of the project on a timely basis.

At this preliminary stage of the project, the project has obtained high-level support from Haleakala Ranch. We have had extensive conversations with the ranch management on the importance of their deep roots in Maui, the trust and respect they have earned over their 132-year history, and their desire to work closely with the community on this project. 

We have retained a Maui-based firm to assist with our goals for engaging with the community. They will be actively interviewing individuals and groups for their perspectives on renewable energy, projects in general, and specifically their views about the Kama’ole Solar Project.

As our outreach progresses, we will be asking Maui residents about what they feel are the most pressing needs in the community. This input will inform our development of a community benefits plan.’
