Kalaeloa Partners LP (KPLP) is holding a virtual community meeting (webinar format) to inform members of surrounding communities, the public, and stakeholders about KPLP’s power generation facility in the Campbell Industrial Park. KPLP will discuss plant operations and efficiency, the benefits it provides in delivering electricity to Oahu’s consumers, as well as updates the renewal of its amended and restated power purchase agreement (ARPPA) with Hawaiian Electric Company (HECO).
The ARPPA extends the agreement for another 10 years, reduces the price of energy and firm capacity provided to HECO, allows for upgrades to the power plant to enhance its efficiency and lower operational costs, and includes an option for switching to biofuels. The ARPPA was submitted on November 24, 2021, to the Public Utilities Commission, and approved on November 23, 2022.
KPLP currently provides electricity to meet about 20% of Oahu's electricity needs and has been in operation since 1991. It is one of the early members of Campbell Industrial Park and has been a long-term supporter of community, educational, health, civic, and neighborhood organizations in the West Oahu area.
This meeting is a continuing series of community briefings to inform the surrounding communities and the public and provide an opportunity for questions and input from the community, including neighboring businesses.
