First Wind, which is proposing to build a 200-megawatt wind farm on Molokai, Hawaii, did not meet a March 18 deadline to show regulators that it has secured land leases for the venture, said Kekoa Kaluhiwa, the firm's director of external affairs. The project is part of a 400-MW initiative involving farms on both Molokai and Lanai islands in Hawaii. If First Wind's portion of the project fails to advance, then the entire 400 MW could be built on Lanai by developer Castle & Cooke, said officials of Hawaiian Electric.
