Pacific Business News - SolarCity, a national clean energy service provider, recently completed an 88-kilowatt PV system on the roof of the administration building at the Maui Highway Baseyard, and is working on a 16-kilowatt system on the administration building at the Ke'anae Highway Baseyard, as well as a 78-kilowatt system at Kahului Harbor that will help power lighting and air conditioning at the cruise ship terminal.
Ke'anae Highway Baseyard construction is under way on a 16-kilowatt system on the administration building. Once completed, the installation will provide power to the administration building and detached garage.
SolarCity has also recently completed a 112-kilowatt photovoltaic system that will provide power for a wastewater treatment plant at the Kona International Airport on Hawai'i Island--the first of eight solar power systems the company is installing at Hawai'i's state-owned airports, harbors and highway baseyards.
On Hawai'i Island, SolarCity is also installing a 35-watt PV system on the design and lab building at the Hilo Highway Baseyard, and will put a 21-kilowatt system on the roof of the main terminal at the Waimea-Kohala Airport.
On Kaua'i, the company is installing a 56-kilowatt system atop the Lihue Airport's cargo building, while at the Lana'i Airport, construction is underway on a 117-kilowatt system on the airport terminal's roof.
The state Department of Transportation also plans to develop solar power projects at seven other sites around the state, and those sites, combined with the eight SolarCity projects, will have the capacity to produce a total of 3.4 megawatts of electricity.
