Located in Maui County, the 600kW PV system will contribute to the state’s feed-in tariff program, with the capacity to feed 2880kWh into the island’s electrical grid each day, enough clean, renewable energy to power up to 220 Maui homes.

Haleakala Solar started construction on the power generation system in June 2011, and the completion is expected in September this year.

AAAAA Rent-A-Space will also deploy a Level 2 electric vehicle charging station, affording the public one of the fastest vehicle charges available.

Upon completion, the project will support the Hawaiian Clean Energy Initiative, which aims to have 70% of the state’s energy for electricity and ground transportation come from clean energy by 2030.

AAAAA Rent-A-Space co-owner Michael Knuppe said the project provides clean, quantifiable benefits to the center’s merchants, community, and Hawaii as a whole.
