In Hawaii, Pacific Current and Pacific Biodiesel Technologies announced the signing of a biodiesel supply contract that will help increase the use of locally sourced renewable fuels and advance Hawaii Island’s energy independence and energy security. Under the agreement, Pacific Biodiesel Technologies, owner and operator of the biodiesel refinery on Hawaii Island, will supply biodiesel for Pacific Current’s Hamakua Energy power generation facility also on Hawaii Island. The liquid-fuel-fired combined cycle power generation facility sells power to Hawaii Electric Light Company (HELCO) under an existing power purchase agreement (PPA) and is able to provide 22 percent of Hawaii Island’s generating capacity. The first delivery of biodiesel to the Hamakua Energy facility will be on November 4, 2019.
