Hawaii Pacific Solar installs PV at no cost to  three more Oahu schools

Hawaii Pacific Solar (HPS) has completed the installation of photovoltaic systems at three more Oahu schools: Aiea Intermediate, Jarrett Middle and Waimalu Elementary. Each Department of Education Oahu school is estimated to save $600,000 to $700,000 over the 20-year life of the system.

 

 Hawaii Pacific Solar has completed PV installation at 19 Oahu schools, and 15 Kauai schools are in process and should be completed by the end of the year.

 

HPS was awarded  Department of Education (DOE) contracts to install solar panels at 45 Oahu and Kauai schools under a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) whereby the system is owned, operated and maintained by RC Energy of Denver Colorado. The installation is at no cost to DOE.

 

RevoluSun Celebrates 5 Years and 5,000 Systems

RevoluSun Celebrates 5 Years and 5,000 Systems

 

RevoluSun is celebrating a huge milestone on July 15. Not only is it Hawaii’s leading solar design and installation firm’s fifth birthday, in just five short years, RevoluSun is approaching their 5,000th PV system installation. In addition, sales are up from last year, and RevoluSun is looking to evolve their offerings into advancements like battery storage and home energy automation concepts.

In 2009, RevoluSun’s founders had a vision to create a trustworthy solar company offering the most experienced workforce and top-notch customer service — two major areas they had experienced as lacking in the solar industry. As RevoluSun evolved, so did their unparalleled quality. Their reputation for having the most-advanced racking system, cutting-edge technology, local knowledge, top-notch workmanship and best warranties is what led the public to seek out RevoluSun’s perspective as HECO’s solar rules changed last year.

RevoluSun Invites Public to Sandy Beach Cleanup

RevoluSun Invites Public to Sandy Beach Cleanup

Just two weeks after opening their doors for business in 2009, RevoluSun held their first beach cleanup with the Oahu Surfrider Foundation, resulting in 900 pounds of trash removed from the Sandy Beach shoreline. This is a tradition that continues today. For the fifth year in a row, RevoluSun has partnered with the Surfrider Foundation’s Oahu Chapter for the Sandy Beach cleanup, which will be held July 19, from 10 a.m. - 12 p.m. Volunteers will be rewarded with a commemorative T-Shirt and free lunch hosted by RevoluSun.

“Our partnership with Surfrider gives RevoluSun the opportunity to continue helping Hawaii in efforts of sustainability beyond providing clean, solar energy to individual homes,” states RevoluSun Principal Eric Carlson. “RevoluSun is more than a solar energy provider. We believe in greener values, caring for our land, and are part of a community working toward a better future for our families.”
