Enersol LLC announced today the finalization of the last design packages for 33 of the Department of Education’s photovoltaic projects on Oahu and Kauai, Hawaii. This project is comprised of 11 systems for 9 schools on Oahu and 22 systems for 15 schools on Kauai. The systems vary in size and will consist of approximately 17,000 PV modules for a total system size of nearly 4 MW. Once complete, the system will produce roughly 6 MWh annually, equating to 31,000 tons of carbon emissions. That’s the same as removing 5,000 cars from the road each year.
Enersol was awarded the design & engineering portion of these projects early last year and has been working diligently with the local utilities, city and county offices, as well as the investment group and contractors to finalize all projects and allow for construction to commence. The first designs received permits in mid-2012, and currently installation teams are working on these permitted sites, with work scheduled to be complete on all sites by the end of this year.
“It is a great honor for Enersol to be associated with the Department of Education projects. Passing on a sustainable future to the children of Hawaii makes us all very proud,” said Jason Hardwick of Enersol. This will add to Enersol’s ever growing portfolio of solar, hydroelectric and wind projects across Hawaii and the South Pacific with the total approaching 10 MW.
