Bosch Solar Energy has completed a 1.9MW solar photovoltaic project in Maui County, Hawaii, which according to the company is the largest in the region.

The project was developed at zero upfront costs with Bosch Solar Energy and its partners jointly developing, constructing, and financing the multiple-site Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) project.

Mayor Alan Arakawa remarked that the project is expected to bring in $10m worth energy savings in the next 20 years.

"The project provided more than 200 local jobs for four months and reflects the County’s commitment to installing renewable energy systems," noted Arakawa.

Bosch Solar Energy North American regional president Eric Daniels added, "The goal of the county to reduce their reliance on fossil fuels and switch to solar energy is commendable. We are pleased our breadth of capabilities can contribute to the solution."

The project is expected to cater to the electricity needs of 11 sites, including four fire stations, two senior centers, the Lahaina police station, the Eddie Tam Community Center and the Kihei Aquatic Center.
