Through a combination of on-site photovoltaic energy, distributed energy storage and energy-efficiency measures, the University of Hawaii’s Maui campus is now completely fossil fuel free. The solar PV installation is generating 1.58 MW of power and includes 12.93 MWh of battery storage. The project is part of a partnership with Johnson Controls and Mauō, a subsidiary of Pacific Current, that includes four UH community college campuses on Oʻahu. UH Maui College follows Leeward CC, which became the first net-zero UH campus in July 2020.
