Asia Pacific Clean Energy Summit & Expo
Going Solar in Hawaii
With limited energy resources on the islands, solar is fast becoming the alternative power source in Hawaii.
REC Solar has a strong presence in Hawaii, and is looking forward to attending the upcoming Asia Pacific Clean Energy Summit and Expo.
At the event, REC Solar consultants will talk about how solar power can benefit local workers, companies and entrepreneurs in Hawaii and across the country.
This year's summit runs September 9th-11th at the Hawaii Convention Center. For more information about financing, incentives and the additional benefits of going solar in Hawaii, contact us via the form at right.
Or, if you prefer, REC Solar discussed energy savings and the financial payback of solar projects during a recent webinar for Chainstore Age.
A look at some of REC Solar's installations in Hawaii:
REC Solar completed a 1.21 MW solar installation, the largest system of its kind in the state of Hawaii and the first of its kind for Kauai. Project partners included Kauai Island Utility Cooperative (KIUC) and Kapaa Solar LLC, who financed the system and negotiated a power purchased agreement (PPA) with KIUC.
REC Solar has recently installed a 680 kW (DC) solar electric system on the Costco Wholesale Corporation’s warehouse in Kauai, HI. The solar electric system located at the Kauai, HI Costco is comprised of 3,888 Mitsubishi 175UD4 panels, two Xantrex 225S-480-P inverters and one Xantrex 100S-480-P inverter. .
The Tony Automotive Group contracted REC to construct roof mounted systems on three adjacent automotive sales dealerships. These systems were completed ahead of schedule and under budget. The client installed an additional carport and roof mounted system the following year, also with REC.
REC Solar designed and installed this fixed tilt, ground mounted system on the southern part of the island of Kauai for the DuPont Pioneer Parent Seed Company. The system site is located at the mouth of the Waimea Ditch with the array expected to be exposed to 1-2 feet of flowing water during the rainy season.
