About Hawaii Pacific Solar
Hawaii Pacific Solar’s mission is to contribute to the sustainability of Hawaii by being a leading developer and designer of photovoltaic systems, including product innovation, service and solutions, and by supporting community environmental efforts.
Serving Hawaii since 2008, Hawaii Pacific Solar’s (HPS) reputation for exceptional quality and service keeps clients returning again and again for its expertise. HPS has a particular mastery of commercial projects, including numerous schools for the Hawaii State Department of Education, retail complexes such as Ala Moana Center and Whalers Village, and hospitality and industrial sites.
HPS’ service, including residential solar and storage projects, spans the entire length of the project, from initial evaluation to working with the utility, obtaining permits, constructing the system and maintaining it to ensure energy production is as expected.
HPS partnered with Haleakala Energy Associates to develop Maui’s first solar farms in Lahaina and Kihei. The Lahaina project (Ku’ia Solar) is a 3.8 megawatt project near Lahainaluna High School. The Kihei project (South Maui Renewables Resources) is a 3.8 megawatt project near the Maui Research and Technology Park.
These projects are the first utility scale solar projects on the Valley Isle. They supply nearly six megawatts of solar power to Maui Electric’s grid at a price of 11.06 cents per kilowatt hour. HPS was instrumental in obtaining the land leases, negotiating the Power Purchase Agreements with Maui Electric and obtaining PUC approval for those agreements.
HPS is consistently listed in the Pacific Business News list of top PV providers. The company received the Pacific Edge Business Achievements Award – Commitment to Green award in 2014 and was a 2016 finalist in Hawaii’s Better Business Bureau Torch Awards for business ethics.
