Five more DOE schools now powered by the sun

 Five more DOE schools now powered by the sun

Hawaii Pacific Solar (HPS) recently completed the installation of photovoltaic systems at five Honolulu schools: Gus Webling Elementary, Washington Middle School, Palolo Elementary, King William Lunalilo Elementary and Prince Jonah Kuhio Elementary. Each of these Department of Education schools is estimated to save $600,000 to $700,000 over the 20-year life of the system.

 

“As more and more schools rely on solar energy for power, the energy conservation and cost savings will continue to have a large impact on DOE and State budgets,” said Bob Johnston, president and CEO of HPS. “We have now 16 Oahu schools with PV systems, and 15 Kauai schools are in the process of installation and should be complete this summer.”
