Kawailoa Wind

  • In accordance with the Endangered Species Act and Chapter 195-D, Hawaii Revised Statutes, Kawailoa Wind developed a Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP) in cooperation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Department of Land and Natural Resources-Division of Forestry and Wildlife, and the Hawaii Endangered Species Recovery Committee. Upon approval of the HCP, the Federal Incidental Take Permit (ITP) and State Incidental Take License (ITL) were issued in December 2011 and January 2012, respectively, for a period of twenty years. The ITP and ITL cover six federally-listed threatened and endangered species and one state-listed endangered species: the Hawaiian stilt, Hawaiian coot, Hawaiian duck, Hawaiian moorhen, Newell’s shearwater, Hawaiian hoary bat, and the Hawaiian short-eared owl, respectively. Kawailoa has been implementing the HCP since approval and was commissioned to begin commercial operation of the 30 turbine, 70 megawatt facility in November 2012.
