Wisconsin Company Brings Solar to Serve Homeless in Hawaii

Hawaii’s Holu Energy LLC partnered with Menomonee Falls, WI-based EnSync Energy to launch a 250kW photovoltaic system to provide electric power to Kahumana, a regional nonprofit organization serving homeless and disabled Oahu residents. The system, a combination of rooftop panels and canopy systems, is projected to reduce Kahumana’s reliance on grid power through a 20-year power purchase agreement. Cost savings resulting from the project are expected to allow Kahumana to provide an additional 40 beds in transitional housing for the homeless. PR Newswire
