AES Corp. has completed a
. . . 28-megawatt solar farm, on
. . . Kauai, Hawaii, that can do something most renewable projects can’t:
. . . . . . transfers power from the sun to batteries,
. . . . . . onto the power grid more efficiently than other existing storage systems, and
. . . . . . deliver power when it’s most needed.  (when the sun don't shine)

It will eliminate the need for about,
. . . 3.7 million gallons of diesel annually, and supply about,
. . . 11% of Kauai’s electricity, making the island more than
. . . 50% powered by renewables.
