UPDATE: The plan originally presented three years ago called for up to 13 turbines. Subsequently, a revised plan released as a part of the original Draft EIS last summer reduced the number of turbines to 10 turbines.
Below are visual simulations of our current proposal and the viewers perspective.
The accepting state and federal agencies have released the Na Pua Makani Wind Project Draft EIS for public comment. Three years of studies, reports and analyses concluded that no significant impacts will result from the project. However, there are significant environmental, economic and financial benefits to the residents of Oahu, including lowering and stabilizing electricity rates, generating revenue for the state and county, and creating jobs for the local community. In addition, the project will deliver a $2 million benefit fund for the Kahuku community and help the state reach the goal of 100% renewable energy by 2045, just enacted by Governor David Ige.
