Conergy to install 4 MW of PV in Hawaii


By 2014, the company said it will install the systems on schools in the U.S. state. The first project, worth around 123 kilowatts (kW) saw 522 of its photovoltaic modules installed at the public Aiea High School in Honolulu.

A spokesperson added that an around 127 kW system has been installed at Kahuku High School, an around 131 kW system at Kaimuki High School and an around 123 kW system at Waianae High School. In a statement released, the company said, "In the next two years, additional elementary and high schools on the islands of Oahu and Kauai will be bringing the energy turnaround to life for their students."

Conergy will undertake the projects with its local partner, Hawaii Pacific Solar (HPS). RC Energy will also participate by securing funding and providing the necessary power purchase agreements.

Commenting, president of Conergy North America, Anthony Fotopoulos said, "Over a 20-year period, each school will, on average, save around $500,000 dollars on their electricity costs, and, most importantly, will also be achieving their aims of educating children about green issues."
