Hawaiian Electric Industries Inc (HE) has begun a one-year study to verify the wind energy potential on the ridges above the company’s Kahe Power Plant. The study began in April of this year to monitor wind speed, direction and turbulence so the utility can confirm the area’s potential to generate electricity with wind. Recently completed high-resolution wind resource maps indicate that the ridges above Kahe have one of Oahu’s strongest wind resources. [ more ]
