Koloa, HI (PRWEB) January 15, 2014
Poipu Beach Villas (PBV), developer of the Koloa Landing at Poipu Beach Wyndham Grand Resort, announced today that they are pursuing a 300 Kilowatt Solar Electric system for their south shore resort property. Owners Representative, Todd Hadley stated, “Our Development Team, General Contractor and Resort Operator are in constant pursuit of practices that will lead to a lifestyle of responsible decision making and environmentally friendly living for our homeowners and guests. Installing one of the largest solar projects on the island is a testament to this commitment.”
This developer sponsored million plus dollar solar project will produce roughly 20% of electrical power currently being used at the property and will produce an estimated 456,000 kilowatt hours of electricity each year . CitiGreen Solar and Haleakala Solar have been selected to do the installation of the system with the solar panels being placed on the roofs of all 6 residential buildings. The entire system is connected to the grid using Enphase micro-inverters. The installation is anticipated to begin within the next month with an expected completion in the 2nd quarter of 2014. This will be one of the largest solar initiatives on island.
Kauai is seeing a dramatic increase in solar projects in the last couple of years, particularly on the south side of the island. The Koloa/Poipu area is already home to Kauai’s second largest solar facility, owned by Kauai Island Utility Cooperative (KIUC). The largest solar facility is located on the South/West side of the island at Port Allen and owned by Alexander & Baldwin Co. Additionally, there is a 300 kilowatt array in Omao. The constant sun in this area creates supreme conditions for solar power.
This solar installation at Koloa Landing reiterates a commitment for clean energy and other climate protection efforts in their community. “Incorporating environmentally responsible initiatives in all aspects of the resort will help protect and sustain our islands natural resources for current and future generations,” said Lance Shenk, General Manager for Koloa Landing at Poipu Beach Wyndham Grand Resort.
