Unprecedented ‘solar opportunity’ for Maui County residents

October 18, 2012
The Maui Weekly

Hawai'i has earned the dubious distinction of having the highest energy prices in the nation, yet it's also one of the sunniest states with some very attractive tax incentives. With a state tax credit of 35 percent up to $5,000 per system (at least through 2012) and an additional federal tax credit of 30 percent, why not "go solar" now?

"At 3D Builders, we look at photovoltaics (PV) differently than most other PV companies," said 3D Builders Partner Dan McEvoy. "We first look at how to make our clients' homes more efficient before sizing a system, which usually results in lower electric use and fewer panels required to conserve without depriving the client's electric habits."

This initial monitoring process allows 3D Builders to suggest energy-saving recommendations prior to sizing or prescribing an appropriate solar system. Even if you aren't in the market--or do not qualify for--a PV system, McEvoy said it's a good idea to monitor and analyze your existing usage to save energy--and money.

In addition to photovoltaic (PV) system installations, the locally owned and operated company offers Professional Electrical System Monitoring from a certified energy manager to monitor and analyze your existing energy consumption in order to offer energy-saving recommendations.

As a locally owned and operated company, 3D Builders' clients take pride in knowing their tax credits will not go back to Mainland companies installing solar in Hawai'i.
