Hawaiian Site Blessing Ceremony for Kalaeloa Renewable Energy Park
On January 18, the partners of the planned Kalaeloa Renewable Energy Park participated in a traditional Hawaiian site blessing to prepare for the start of construction. Kahu William Kaina conducted the blessing of the site, located on 20 acres of leased U.S. Navy land near ‘Ewa Field.
Kahu Kaina encouraged the observance of three guiding principles as construction proceeds: lokahi, or unity; laulima, or cooperation and pulling together; and kuleana, or ownership with responsibility.
The concept of the solar park was first developed in 2009 by Hunt Companies and Scatec Solar North America, Inc. Hanwha SolarEnergy America joined the project in 2012 to provide financing and modules, and Swinerton Renewable Energy will serve as contractor for the project.
