Hawaii's State Department of Education (DOE) has partnered with Hawaii Pacific Solar (HPS), Conergy and RC Energy to complete a series of solar electric installations at public schools on Oahu in Hawaii.
The first project – a 123 kW installation at Aiea High School – has been completed by local integrator HPS.
DOE and HPS selected Conergy for product supply, and RC Energy to secure funding for the projects. With 522 Conergy modules attached to a Conergy SunTop mounting system, the solar installation is expected to produce approximately 174,000 kWh annually.
HPS was awarded a DOE contract to install solar energy systems at Aiea, Kahuku, Kaimuki and Waianae high schools under a power purchase agreement. The systems will be owned, operated and maintained by RC Energy.Â
Additional sites awarded by the DOE are expected to be completed over the next 12 months.
