We are a non-profit corporation organized to advance the development and sustainability of clean energy in Hawaii. HCPA educates the public about the benefits of clean energy and works towards the advancement of utility-scale, grid-connected clean energy projects. These projects benefit everyone—seniors, tenants, low and moderate income families, and businesses—by making renewable energy accessible and available.
HCPA supports the State of Hawaii’s policy goal of 100% electric renewable portfolio standard by 2045 — including local sustainability, reduced greenhouse gas, and carbon neutrality.
A diverse mix of utility-scale clean energy projects furthers energy independence, energy security, and self-sufficiency. It benefits ratepayers. It propels Hawaii into the future and away from its fossil-fuel dependent past.
