The two solar power projects on Maui are expected to be operational by mid December.  This is about a year later than expected.  The 2.87-megawatt Kuia Solar Project is located on about 12 acres near Lahainaluna High School.  The other project is South Maui Renewable Resources near the Maui Research & Technology Park.  Maui currently gets 37% of itʻs electricity from renewable resources and is ahead of the stateʻs 2030 benchmark.  The goal is to have 100% renewable energy resources by 2045.
