Ameresco Inc., a Framingham-based company specializing in energy resiliency projects, has been awarded two clean energy projects on the island of O’ahu in Hawai‘i. 

The company announced in a press release on Monday that it has been awarded contracts for the Pu’uola Energy installation, which is designed to generate 99 megawatts of energy using biodiesel and biogas fuels, and the Pu’uola Solar project, an installation designed to provide the island with 6.4 megawatts of solar generation. 

The Pu’uola Energy installation is expected to come online in Q3 of 2026, while the Pu’uola Solar project is expected to be completed by Q4 of 2027, pending successful negotiations of a power purchase agreement and approved by Hawai’i’s Public Utilities Commission. 

In addition to these two projects, Ameresco is working with the Department of Navy to secure a second land lease at Joint Base Pearl Harbor Hickam to provide energy resilience upgrades to the base’s infrastructure, according to the release.

“These projects align with the energy priorities and policies set forth by the state of Hawaii, including the 100 percent renewable energy and carbon neutral goals by 2045 and also strongly support the Navy’s goals to bring energy resiliency to Pearl Harbor,” Nicole Bulgarino, Executive Vice President of Ameresco, said in the statement. “We are committed to working with the community as we move forward with these exciting projects that are designed to deliver clean energy to O‘ahu.”

The announcement of these two Hawaiian projects comes on the heels of a number of high-profile projects for the company; Ameresco really announced they have been awarded a contract to build a backup power generator at a major West Coast military base, the acquisition of a microgrid project in California, and the awardance of a contract to build a large-scale energy storage system in Colorado.
