AES Distributed Energy (AES), a division of the AES Corporation, was selected by Hawaiian Electric Companies to develop and operate two new utility-scale solar plus storage facilities at Oahu, Hawaii. One will be a 19.5 MW solar project with a 35 MWh battery energy storage system (BESS), and the other will be a 60 MW solar project with a 240 MWh BESS. The two projects are expected to generate 137,000 MWh of total renewable energy. The construction of these projects is expected to begin in 2022. The projects are expected to be commissioned by 2023.
