Company seeking third wind farm

A subsidiary of a Boston-based wind power company is seeking to build what would be its third wind farm in Hawaii.Kawailoa LLC, a subsidiary of First Wind LLC, is proposing to build a new wind turbine facility on land at the former Kawailoa Plantation on Oahu’s North Shore.

The company currently operates a wind farm on Maui and is building one in Kahuku.

Kawailoa is proposing the construction of up to 43 wind turbine generators and support facilities on state-owned land.

Officials say power from the facility would produce 70 megawatts of electricity capable of providing power to 15,000 homes by 2012.
