HONOLULU – www.dephawaii.com – Central Union Church today announced it is expected to save almost $12,000 in energy costs per year through its new 116 kW photovoltaic (PV) system installed by Distributed Energy Partners (“DEP”). DEP installed the solar system on the Women’s Building and Parish Hall at Central Union Church’s 8.4-acre campus in Honolulu.
“Helping Central Union Church take advantage of Hawaii's natural resources with a PV system has been a privilege,” said Steve Mazur, DEP’s Senior Renewable Energy Developer. “I commend the members at the church who committed to find ways to reduce electricity use through a series of efficiency projects along with the PV installation. The PV project will set a great example to the community of ways to reduce our dependence on imported oil and making choices that will benefit our generation and future generations.”
