Hawi Wind Farm at Upolu Point

We noitced these windmills from the highway and drove down the Upolu Airport road to have a closer look. The scale of these windmills is hard to fathom. The sound made by the blads as they spun in the wind was definately formidable.

The Hawi Wind Farm, has a 10.56 MW capacity, consisting of 16 Vestas V47 (660 kW) wind turbines and interconnection facilities, became operational in May 2006. A purchase power agreement with Hawaii Electric Light Company was approved by the Public Utilities Commission on May 14, 2004.
