Castle & Cooke Hawaii and SunPower announced today that their new solar energy farm, the La Ola Solar Farm, is now producing solar energy on the Hawaiian island of Lana’i.  Utilizing SunPower trackers, the new facility is capable of producing 1.2 MW of solar energy, enough to meet 30% of Lana’i’s electricity needs.

Here’s what Tom Werner, SunPower’s CEO, had to say about the event:

"Clean, reliable solar power will become a core energy investment over the next decade, driven in large part by visionary leaders such as Castle & Cooke, MECO and the State of Hawai’i. Having installed the first commercially-financed solar power system in the US on the Big Island of Hawaii in 1998, followed by more than six megawatts of solar power systems across the Hawaiian islands since that time, we are pleased to dedicate this very significant project on the island of Lana’i."
