Commerical Solar Projects

Hawaii Pacific Solar Commercial Projects

Hawaii Pacific Solar has a particular mastery of large-scale renewable energy commercial solar projects, including Department of Education schools, retail, hospitality and industrial sites. HPS’ service spans the entire length of the project, from roof mitigation to working with the utility and county permitting.

HPS is also a joint venture partner with South Maui Renewable Resources and Ku’ia Solar and Haleakala Energy Associates in developing Maui’s first solar farms in Lahaina and Kihei. Kuia Solar plans to build a 2.87-megawatt project in Lahaina near Lahainaluna High School. South Maui Renewables Resources plans to build the 2.87-megawatt project near the Maui Research and Technology Park in Kihei.  These projects will be the first utility scale solar projects on the Valley Isle. The two projects are expected to provide up to nearly six megawatts of solar power to Maui Electric’s grid at a price of 11.06 cents per kilowatt-hour.

See below for a sample of projects and case studies.
