Hawaiian Electric Companies achieve 27% renewable energy in 2018

Hawaiian Electric Companies reached a consolidated 27% renewable portfolio standard in 2018, even after the state’s Hawaii Island lost its geothermal resources for most of the year as a result of the Kilauea volcanic eruption. Even with the loss of geothermal assets, the companies are still on course to reach 100% renewable energy by 2045. In total, the 2018 consolidated renewable portfolio standard (RPS) remained the same as it was in 2017, while that total would have been lifted up to 29% had Puna Geothermal Venture (PGV) produced at the same level as 2017.
