Pacific Green Ikehu LLC, a subsidiary of SB Energy Corp., is proposing to develop the Kamaole Solar Project, a 40 MW solar photovoltaic energy project paired with a 160 MWh battery energy storage on Maui. The proposed project will occupy approximately 320 acres of Haleakala Ranch land in the Kamaole Ahupua’a of Maui.
The Tax Map Key (TMK) for the project is (2)2-2-002:001 as well as a portion of TMK (2)2-2-002:050. The project will interconnect to the circuit associated with the Kealahou-Anwahi line.

For the realization of a prosperous society that we can be proudly passed on to our children, SB Energy is actively promoting the spread of renewable energy.
The Kamaole Solar Project will proactively reach out to and engage the community to listen for concerns and opportunities for support. Frequent and meaningful communication will be critical for minimizing impacts and maximizing the benefits of the project on a timely basis.
At this preliminary stage of the project, the project has obtained high-level support from Mayor Victorino’s administration and Haleakala Ranch. We have had extensive conversations with the ranch management on the importance of their deep roots in Maui, the trust and respect they have earned over their 132-year history, and their desire to work closely with the community on this project. Consultations have begun with other county officials and community leaders as well who have also expressed interest in the project and are eager to learn more as our community outreach process continues.
We have retained a Maui-based firm to assist with our goals for engaging with the community. They will be actively interviewing individuals and groups for their perspectives on renewable energy, projects in general, and specifically their views about the Kamaole Solar Project.
As our outreach progresses, we will be asking Maui residents about what they feel are the most pressing needs in the community. This input will inform our development of a community benefits plan.
