King's Cathedral in Kahului has joined the green movement by asking HNU to install a photovoltic system.
The PV system is expected to provide up to 60 percent of the church's energy, saving them an estimated $2 million annually.
"Our electric bill is over $20,000 a month," said Senior Pastor Dr. James Marocco. "Initially, we are paying for solar power, so current monthly savings are minimal. However, we will save approximately $12,000 a month when the system is donated to the church in seven years. This $2 million saved over the remaining life of the system will help King's Cathedral fulfill their mission in the communities we serve."
"Our 236-kilowatt installation at the King's Cathedral is state-of-the-art," said HNU Energy CEO Dan O'Connell. "The 1,050 photovoltaic panels powering this system were manufactured by SunPower, the global leader in delivering the highest efficiency, highest reliability solar panels available."
