"We are honored to partner with AES DE and KIUC to establish in the state of Hawaii the largest solar plus energy storage system, providing Kaua'i with more reliable and economical renewable energy."

As to the first question, KIUC has exceeded even the most optimistic expectations and is ahead of schedule on every financial metric.
KIUC has seen membership rise, from 31,000 members to more than 33,000.
By generating clean energy on the island, KIUC will decrease fossil fuel imports from the mainland and save nearly $250,000 a month on operating costs alone.
The solution addresses the concerns of KIUC and other utilities regarding "grid saturation," where electricity generated by a solar PV system exceeds the maximum amount allowed on a particular circuit.
