Hawaiian Island, Kaua’i, Enjoying 55% Green Electricity which Solar Share is 80%

The Hawaiian Island of Kaua’i has supplied 55% of its electricity demand from renewable sources in 2019. It is also interesting that more than 80% of the share has been Solar Power. This has made this island a successful example of massive reliance on renewable energy. Their energy mix includes Solar PV utility-scale and rooftop solar, hydropower, and biomass. 

Kaua’i had set to reach a 50% share of renewables into the electricity supply mix by 2019. But now, the country has exceeded its goals and aims to have 70% of its power supply comprise of renewables by 2030.

According to TaiyangNews, Kaua’i Island Utility Cooperative (KIUC) credits this feat to a number of factors, including successful “partnerships” with local “landowners” and leading renewable companies “Tesla” and “AES Distributed Energy”.
