Solar & PV

Harnessing Power from Hawaii’s Most Abundant Natural Resource


Long hours of ample Hawaiian sunshine present opportunities for large-scale commercial solar and PV installations for private industry, institutions and government along with residential applications.


The County of Hawaii is leading by example with the installation of its 250-kilowatt photovoltaic system that powers the 80,000-square foot West Hawaii Civic Center. This installation, the first of its kind for government facilities in Hawaii, displaces 770 barrels of oil, saving taxpayers over $100,000 in energy costs annually.


Energy innovation is welcome on Hawaii Island where Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) systems and other technologies for battery and fuel-cell storage are under development. Renewable energy storage helps solve volatility challenges and will provide valuable grid stability.
