Huge Price Reduction on 32-acre Hydroelectric Plant

Do you think of the Big Island as one of the best places in the world to create clean, green energy?

East Hawaii’s most beautiful estate property. Three TMK’s totaling 32.8 acres (MLS# 233350)

Original List Price: $2,500,000
New Asking price: $1,600,000 (-$900,000)

Originally part of the Hoowaiwai Farm Estates, Palm Valley Farm has a state of the art hydroelectric plant where you can generate your own power—plus sell power back to HELCO. With three separate parcels (three TMKs) totaling over 32 acres of land, the Farm has five ponds, streams and waterfalls, and a collection of rare, tropical trees and palms.

Imagine… creating your own power from water!

Now, with a huge price reduction of nearly $1M, this incredible estate property on the Big Island’s beautiful Hamakua Coast is ready and waiting for a new caretaker. Talk about malama ke ‘aina—here is your opportunity to care for the land in a powerful way. No more polluting the air, or the water, with electricity powered by diesel fuel. Live in one of the three cottages—or build your dream home and live luxuriously—and guilt-free.

It’s never too late to live your best Hawaii Life!

With such a substantial price reduction, someone could easily afford to build a private putting green! Nice.

Of course this is the perfect place to create green energy; energy of any kind actually. Remember everyone, we have a live volcano here; talk about enery! It doesn’t get more energizing.

I read that the owners have decided not to sell at this point. I would still be interested in the property details – years remaining on the power purchase agreement, annual output, structures, former listing price, etc. if that might be possible

Thanks
