Ewa wind farm seeking community input

As Hawaiian Electric Co. evaluates proposals for a new wave of renewable energy projects on Oahu, one bidder is laying the groundwork for a wind farm with up to 16 turbines on the island’s west side, even before it gets a final nod from HECO.

Eurus Energy America Corp. seemed to have a deal with HECO to develop a big wind farm on the eastern slope of the Waianae Range, on property owned by Gill Ewa Lands.

But Hawaii regulators delayed the project in September, saying Eurus would have to submit a bid like others.

With recent projects delayed amid community and environmental concerns, the Palehua Wind project isn’t simply waiting for a nod from HECO, said Lynn Miyahira, a Palehua spokeswoman.

“The project isn’t necessarily on ‘hold’ as they are continuing to do studies and meet with stakeholders,” she said in a statement.
