"This project has done very well since its completion in April and with the assistance of Jim Walker, who heads our asset management division. We are excited to increase our management and ownership of this beautiful site."

The Hawi project is located at Upolo Point on the Big Island of Hawaii. It is comprised of 16 Vestas V47 wind turbines and has a long-term power purchase agreement with Hawaii Electric Light Co.
