Project Update

As a part of the final preparations to bring Nā Pua Makani online, HECO will be conducting utility work along Kamehameha Highway in Kahuku on Tuesday, August 11 from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. One lane of Kamehameha Highway will be closed from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and traffic will be contra-flowed. Drivers in the area may experience delays and should plan accordingly. 

Nā Pua Makani is on track to be operational at the end of Summer 2020 and is expected to generate 24 megawatts of wind energy – enough to power up to 16,000 homes and reduce CO2 emissions by up to 70,000 tons each year.
