The Gas Co. commits to renewable energy

The Gas Co. is looking to increase its renewable-energy resources within the next five years.


The Honolulu company announced Monday that it has entered into a memorandum of understanding with California-based Primoris Renewables, a subsidiary of Primoris Services Corp., to increase the renewable components in its gas supply.


The Gas Co. President and CEO Jeffrey Kissel said the companies will adapt the synthetic natural gas plant at Campbell Industrial Park in Kapolei to process agricultural products and landfill gas into biomethane, renewable diesel or similar products.


“Jointly with Primoris, we are adapting our unique synthetic natural gas technology to utilize agricultural feedstock, rather than petroleum, as we meet the needs of Hawaii’s residents and business for low-cost, clean gas energy,” Kissel said in a prepared statement. “With more than 60 years’ experience in the energy sector, Primoris is the ideal partner for us to adapt our hydrogen-based technology to reduce Hawaii’s dependence on foreign-sourced oil.”


The Gas Co. owns and operates the only synthetic natural gas plant in the United States. The plant uses a catalytic process to convert the byproducts of petroleum refining into methane and hydrogen for its Honolulu customers, the company said.


The Gas Co. has approximately 67,000 customers throughout the state.
