Solar systems installed at Hawaii airports and harbors. The more & more I hear about “Going Green” the happy I become. If we all focus on getting away from polluting fuels and energies the cleaner our environment will become. Our children, our grandchildren will all live in a better world.

SolarCity has completed a 112-kilowatt phootovoltaic system that will provide power for a wastewater treatment plant at the Kona International Airport on the Big Island, the first of eight solar power systems the company is installing at Hawaii state-owned airports, harbors and highway baseyards.

On the Big Island, SolarCity is also installing a 35-watt PV system on the design and lab building at the Hilo Highway Baseyard, and will put a 21-kilowatt system on the roof of the main terminal at the Waimea-Kohala Airport.

On Kauai, the company is installing a 56-kilowatt system atop the Lihue Airport’s airport’s cargo building, while at the Lanai Airport, construction is underway on a 117-kilowatt system on the airport terminal’s roof.

SolarCity also recently completed an 88-kilowatt PV system on the roof of the administration building at the Maui Highway Baseyard, and is working on a 16-kilowatt system on the administration building at the Keanae Highway Baseyard, as well as a 78-kilowatt system at Kahului Harbor that will help power lighting and air conditioning at the cruise ship terminal.

The state Department of Transportation also plans to develop solar power projects at seven other sites around the state, and those sites, combined with the eight SolarCity projects, will have the capacity to produce a total of 3.4 megawatts of electricity.

“This initiative advances the state’s continued leadership in reducing our dependency on imported fossil fuels and moves us toward Hawai‘i’s goal of 70 percent clean energy by 2030,” state Department of Transportation Director Glenn Okimoto said in a statement. “Using renewable energy to power state facilities is a smart investment that will pay off for years to come.”
