Clean Energy

Kauai Island Utility Cooperative, Hawaii’s only member-owned electric utility, is making significant progress toward its goal of using renewable resources to generate 50 percent of Kauai’s power by 2023.

By 2016, 38 percent of the electricity generated on Kauai will come from a mix of renewable resources: solar, hydropower and biomass. That’s up from 5 percent in 2009.

On the sunniest days, 60 percent of Kauai’s daytime energy needs are met by solar, which is believed to be the highest percentage of solar on an electrical grid of any utility in the U.S.
